An injury-time equaliser earned Scotland a 2-2 draw with Georgia in their penultimate Euro 2024 qualifier.
Steve Clarke’s side fell behind twice to goals from Georgia talisman Kvicha Kvaratskhelia but goals from Scott McTominay and Lawrence Shankland ensured a point from a hard-fought and at times ill-tempered game.
Scotland fell a goal behind after just 15 minutes when an incisive attack saw Georgia switch play from the left flank to the right before a low first-time cross was swept into the net by Kvicha Kvaratskhelia.
Clarke made two changes at half time and saw an instant response when substitute Kenny McLean played the ball into the path of McTominay, who lashed in a powerful shot from outside the box to equalise.
Georgia quickly regained the lead, with Kvaratskhelia cutting inside Nathan Patterson before firing a shot past Zander Clark into the opposite corner.
Scotland looked to be heading for their second defeat of the campaign but two minutes into injury time Stuart Armstrong swung a ball into the box and fellow substitute Shankland rose to head in the equaliser.
Clarke and his players will now return to Glasgow for their final qualifier against Norway at Hampden on Sunday.
