Scotland fans turned on Alex McLeish after watching the 2-1 defeat from Israel.
It was a disastrous night for the Scotland boss who was suffering his fifth defeat in seven matches since taking over from Gordon Strachan.
A 2-0 win at home to Albania raised expectations that Scotland could progress from their Nations League group with tonight’s opponents rated 94 in the FIFA rankings.
McLeish should have never been appointed like bloody hell, absolute dinosaur

It doesn’t matter where we are at the end of it, that was abysmal.
Mcleish should have stayed away when he walked away, nothing but a dinosaur.

Just not good enough. Almost to a man we were off our game. Could have easily been a few more. Played tonight like they don’t have a clue what mcleish wants them to do. Nor want to play for him.

The only way the #SFA will bin McLeish is if fans stop paying to see the national team and it costs them money. The way we played tonight, that might happen. Painful viewing, so who’d go to Hampden?

The @ScottishFA have succeeded in picking a ‘manager’ who has driven us backwards by using an old boys club selection policy, ignoring those in form and accepting mediocrity. It’s disgraceful. Where have our ball-winning/holding midfielders gone? McLeish is a dinosaur.

McLeish probably the absolute worst candidate out of all the choices for Scotland manager. Jack Ross, McInnes, O’Neill, Strachan. McLeish is smack bottom of the list. A dinosaur.

When you try and play two left backs in the same team????? McLeish hasnt got a clue

Dominated by a side ranked 93rd in the world. Even with 11 men on the park we didn’t look like taking any points off Israel. Never wanted McLeish as manager and a performance like that tonight only justify that he is out of ideas for this team. https://t.co/NMRZ0N0sbm

Scared to decide between Kieran Tierney and Andy Robertson McLeish picked both men out of position with Israel taking full advantage of the gaps behind the Scotland wing-backs.
Charlie Mulgrew’s first half penalty gave Scotland false hope but after the break Israel dominated and were well worth their victory.
Having discarded Leigh Griffiths, McLeish got next to nothing out of Steven Naismith and Jonny Russell who were both substituted long before the end.
Next up for the Tartan Army is a trip to Albania next month with the focus on the Scotland manager and his decision to demote Leigh Griffiths.
On Sunday Israel host Albania.
