Watch: Kieran Tierney Own-Goal Sums Up Shocking Night For Scotland

On a woeful night for Scotland in the UEFA Nations League, a late Kieran Tierney own-goal resulted in a 2-1 win for Israel in Haifa.

Having taken a 1-0 lead through Charlie Mulgrew's first-half penalty, the hosts equalised through Dor Peretz shortly after the second-half kicked off.

Reduced to 10-men after John Souttar was sent-off shortly thereafter, it was backs to the wall for Alex McLeish's men.

Eventually, the pressure told - this Kieran Tierney own-goal could have been dealt with a little better by the Celtic man.

Playing in the third of the four Nations League tiers, Scotland kicked-off their campaign with a 2-0 defeat of Albania.

With the Albanians beating Israel in the first round of games, all three teams now sit on 3 points with two games played.

Still sitting top of group 1, Scotland will be keen to move beyond tonight's disappointing result as quick as possible.

Needless to say, viewers were left disappointed, but not necessarily surprised.
