Scotland boss Alex McLeish searching for rhythm over results

Scotland manager Alex McLeish says his side is a work in progress and he is prepared to sacrifice results during the ongoing international friendlies in order to find the right balance in his team.

McLeish, who replaced Gordon Strachan as Scotland manager last month, handed five players their debuts during Friday's friendly against Costa Rica.

The much-changed side, including newcomers Scott McTominay, Scott McKenna, Kevin McDonald, Oliver McBurnie and Jamie Murphy, put in a laboured performance in the first half as the Central American visitors won 1-0 at Hampden Park.

McLeish, however, was not too disappointed with the defeat.

McLeish had a previous successful spell as Scotland manager in 2007.
