Andy Robertson gave each member of the Scottish squad a special gift box ahead of the European Championships and Liverpool left-back even included an Apple Watch for his teammates. The gesture was entirely on the Scottish captain’s back as he seeks to build team spirit in Steve Clarke’s camp just days away from their Group D opener.
Scotland qualified for their first major international tournament since the 1998 World Cup in France when they beat Serbia on penalties in November.
Now they’re there to make sure they’re not there to catch up with the numbers, with a grudge match against England on the horizon.
Four years ago today at Hampden Park, Scotland were minutes away from a memorable victory over the Three Lions thanks to two goals from Leigh Griffiths.
However, Harry Kane hit a late equalizer to break Scottish hearts and save England from a late collapse.

“It kind of made you realize that you are here, you are at the Euro and it has started now.”
When asked to explain the contents of the box, Nisbet revealed that players have all received an Apple Watch, which is currently valued at £ 379.
“There were Apple Watches, headphones, stuff.
“I think it’s a credit to Robbo, he did it all on his own back.
“I think he’s a guy who’s a great captain, a great leader and he’s the best person to move us forward.”
The boxes also contained Iron Brew, Blue Label whiskey and a host of other drinks related to their country.
“There was also a gunshot, there was shortbread, iron infusion,” Nisbet added. “It was just a few things to do with Scotland.
“It’s a great touch, it brings your team even closer. Everyone was very grateful.
“He has obviously gone out of his way to do it and we will support him 100%.”
