Ikechi Anya insists Gordon Strachan has the backing of the Scotland players following Friday's 3-0 defeat by England at Wembley.
The result saw the Scots drop to second bottom of Group F with four points from four games, leaving their prospects of reaching the 2018 World Cup in Russia looking bleak.
Gordon Strachan believes Scotland's friendly against England at Celtic Park tonight will be played in the right spirit - like the Euro 2016 qualifier against Republic of Ireland.
Much was made about the robust and physical nature of the match against the Irish at Parkhead last Friday night where Shaun Maloney's second-half goal kept Scots' hopes of qualifying for the finals in France very much alive.
Scotland boss Strachan said:
Gordon Strachan said the Scotland job is a "fantastic thing" and although they are bottom of their World Cup qualifying group they would "give it a go" in trying to qualify for the 2014 tournament in Brazil.
The new Scotland manager Gordon Strachan said:
Gordon Strachan said his family and friends were "very, very proud" that he has become the manager of Scotland.
