becomes Scotlands highest transfer at 13 million moving from Forrest to Red Bull Leipzig in the Bundesliga.

Looks a real talent from the limited highlights ive seen . its hard to tell from the over inflated prices down south but should he go straight in against Malta?

Most folk want him starting but im pretty sure he plays on the right a position which Snodgrass plays and is a vital player for us. thats if e recovers from fis collision with the goalpost

I don't think he'll start but could be an option off the bench if the usual happens and we can't break down a defensive side.  The price tag doesn't mean he'll get a start - McCormack cost £1m less and isn't even in the squad!

Lose this one, which is quite possible, and our World Cup is over. God, it's depressing supporting Scotland.

It is rather grim...

From the bbc - "The Scots' recent record in the opening games of qualifying tournaments is not encouraging, though. Since they last reached the finals of a major competition – France 98 – Scotland have played in nine qualifying groups and won only two of their opening matches. Here is the playing record and the results:"

P 9          W 2         D 5          L 2           GF 10      GA 5

Euro 2000 qualifying – Lithuania 0-0 Scotland

World Cup 2002 qualifying – Latvia 0-1 Scotland

Euro 2004 qualifying – Faroe Islands 2-2 Scotland

World Cup 2006 qualifying – Scotland 0-0 Slovenia

Euro 2008 qualifying – Scotland 6-0 Faroe Islands

World Cup 2010 qualifying – Macedonia 1-0 Scotland

Euro 2012 qualifying – Lithuania 0-0 Scotland

World Cup 2014 qualifying – Scotland 0-0 Serbia

Euro 2016 qualifying – Germany 2-1 Scotland
