Scott McKenna says Scotland will make peace with their Dublin horror show when they host the Republic of Ireland in Saturday’s League of Nations clash.

The Scots were beaten 3-0 by Stephen Kenny’s team at Aviva Stadium in June. Although they recovered to win their two most recent games against Armenia and Ukraine, Nottingham Forest defender McKenna feels that Scotland owe their fans a great performance against the Irish this weekend.

“I imagine they (Ireland) will play the same way because of the problems they caused us, but we were very poor that day and we let a lot of people down,” he said. “We’ll try to make up for it tomorrow.”

Asked if Scotland feel they have something to prove, McKenna said: “Yes, definitely. We let ourselves down, we dropped everyone back home and we also dropped a lot of travel support down. We owe it to everyone to make a presentation and get a positive result.”

McKenna has made 27 appearances for Scotland since his 2018 debut but has had to be patient to establish himself as a starter.

Injuries to key centre-backs such as Andy Robertson, Grant Hanley and Liam Cooper paved the way for the 25-year-old to start in three of the team’s last four games, including a stunning 3-0 home win to Ukraine on Wednesday. fair, when he teamed up with Jack. Hendry in the heart of a back four.

“When I’m out of the team it’s because the players in my position are doing really well,” he said. “Grant Hanley has been excellent for the past two years and KT (Kieran Tierney) is a world class player who has been playing to the left of the three centre-backs, so I can have absolutely no argument about not playing.

“I always felt it was important that when I played I showed the manager what I could do and I think I managed to do that.”
