Manager Alex McLeish insists Scotland still have a "phenomenal" chance of reaching Euro 2008 but admits he is concerned about big penalty decisions going against his players.

James McFadden was denied a spot-kick in the qualifier against Georgia when they were only a goal down, despite being blatantly fouled by former Rangers defender Zurab Khizanishvili.

McLeish believes Group B giants Italy and France get a better deal from officials. "More often than not they get decisions and that´s not always the case for countries like Scotland," He told the Daily Record.
