RYAN Fraser has praised new Scotland manager Steve Clarke for making the national side hard to beat, but even more so for giving the side a licence to attack.

The Bournemouth winger has been hugely impressed by Clarke in the short time he has worked under him, and he is sure that his organisational ability will mean that Scotland won't be pushovers in Brussels on Tuesday night.

He is just as sure though that Scotland can pose a threat of their own going the other way, particularly down the left side through himself, Callum McGregor and Andy Robertson.

“The triangle we had was working very well throughout the game," Fraser said.

“Me and Robbo have played together for the last three games, and every game we’ve complemented each other well.

“I know when to come inside and when to give him the ball, because he likes crossing the ball for Liverpool, and he knows when I want it wide too. We complement each other well and it can only get better.

“The gaffer here has started with a foundation of being hard to beat, and I agree, we’ve been too easy to beat.

“But he’s not one of those managers who just focuses on defence. He says ‘right, you six do your stuff’, he’ll run through the gameplan of where we can exploit people.

“He just tells you to be yourself and he gives you that belief to go forward and do your stuff, which is nice.

“He’s made an impact on all the players. I’m not going to lie, I’m an attacker, but in football these days you do have to know how to defend.

“As long as you work hard for the team then you know he will give you the licence to go forward and do your stuff."
