Gutted Scott McKenna admits Scotland players will take months to get over Euro 2024 heartache

Scott McKenna admits it could take months for Scotland's players to get over their Euro heartache.

Steve Clarke's side crashed out of the competition with last night's defeat to Hungary leaving them at the bottom of Group A with just one point. They'd dominated possession against the Hungarians but didn't threaten their goal too much and after opening up towards the end, conceded a later sickener.

The team had gone into the game with a chance of becoming the first Scotland side EVER to make it out of a group stage at a major tournament. That required a first victory of the competition, with the outside chance of going through with a draw but that wasn't to be.

McKenna admits the squad are gutted and will take some time to bounce back. But bounce back they will, he insists.

He said: "Massively disappointed is the only way to describe the feeling in the changing room after the game. Obviously we came here wanting to win the game and try and do something a Scotland team has never done before, but it wasn't to be.

"I think the overriding emotion just disappointment and I think it will be like that for a while. It will take a few weeks, maybe even months to process. But it's a group of players that certainly can pick ourselves up and hopefully qualify for more tournaments."
