Scotland's players have finally put the 'Boozegate' saga to bed, according to full-back Alan Hutton.
Hutton revealed manager George Burley had spoken to his squad, as planned, about their conduct ahead of Wednesday's crucial World Cup qualifier in Norway.
The Tottenham defender said: "The manager has had a conversation with us before training. All the stuff that went on was not great and not good for anybody involved with Scotland but we have to focus on the game at hand. We have not got to a finals in 11 years and to get there would be a massive achievement."
He added: "Hopefully we are all pulling in the same direction to get there.
"There were always ground rules but obviously what happened was a bit out of line. We have gone over it. We are all professionals and we all know how we should conduct ourselves. The manager has gone over it and everyone is moving in the same direction."
Hutton was reportedly one of a number of players who stayed up drinking at the team hotel following March's Group Nine defeat in Holland.
He turned in long before team-mates Barry Ferguson and Allan McGregor, whose early-hours binge sparked a chain of events that eventually led to them being banned from representing their country ever again.
