The pressure was back on George Burley as Scotland slumped to a 3-0 defeat to Wales in Cardiff and travelling fans turned on the national team manager.

Burley managed to hold onto his job in the wake of his failure to secure a World Cup play-off spot, but will no doubt find his position under scrutiny once again with the Tartan Army spending the second half of this match directing verbal abuse at him and the Scottish Football Association.

The damage was done in the first half when Arsenal teenager - and man of the match - Aaron Ramsey played a part in goals for David Edwards and Simon Church, as well as grabbing a superb goal of his own.
