Rangers defender Andy Webster gave Scotland the lead two minutes into the second half, but with the score at 1-0, Marshall was forced to dive at the feet of Andy Little to prevent him equalising.

Then substitute Oliver Norwood, a Manchester United youngsters, drew a fine save from Marshall with a 30-yard free-kick, the 'keeper tipping the ball over the bar.

Goals from George Boyd and substitute Leigh Griffiths wrapped up the Scots victory in front of a crowd of 2,110.
