McLeish has been heavily criticised faced calls for his sacking in the wake of losing to the Kazakhs, who raced to a 2-0 lead after only 10 minutes Thursday.

“The single apology we can supply the fans would be really to go outside and win the next match,” McLeish said.
“We are all hurting, and we’re fans also. I followed the team just as a young man and was happy to wear this jerseyand these guys are too”

McLeish told Sky Sports on Saturday:”I’m not going to say’guys, we need to gain this 10-0 or I will be seeking new players.’
“We will try to get the match and we’re confident about doing that.
“We have got young players getting in to the team and learning the harsh facts of global football.”
