Jamie Mackie struck a superb goal after injury to Steven Naismith presented him with the chance to make his Scotland comeback against Cyprus - but the QPR player is desperate for his colleague to return as soon as possible.

Mackie was handed a start in the wide left position recently occupied by Naismith, who suffered cruciate ligament damage two weeks ago, and cut inside brilliantly to slot home Scotland's second goal in a 2-1 victory in Larnaca.

But, having just returned from a nine-month lay-off from a broken leg in recent weeks, Mackie is not looking to take Naismith's place, and said: "I'm gutted for Naisy, he's a great lad. I was in the squad with him the first time I was here and I really liked him. I've been there with a bad injury and I wish him all the best."
