Andrew Robertson will make his first appearance for Scotland at Hampden Park this week still irked by his last match at the national stadium.
The 21-year-old full-back started his career with amateur outfit Queen’s Park, who play at Hampden, and his last game there before joining Dundee United in 2013 was a Second-Division play-off fixture against Peterhead.
Andy Rodgers’ stoppage-time penalty gave the visitors a 1-0 first-leg win and a 3-1 defeat away dashed the Spiders’ promotion hopes.
Robertson, who moved to Hull City last summer, has been capped five times during his meteoric rise in the game but Hampden was out of commission for his three appearances at home which meant he pulled on the dark blue once at Ibrox and twice at Parkhead.
Ahead of the friendly against Northern Ireland on Wednesday night and the Euro qualifier against Gibraltar on Sunday, he looked forward to returning to Mount Florida to bury a play-off ghost.
“Two years ago Hampden was my home ground,” he said. “I can’t wait to be back at the national stadium.
“My last game there was against Peterhead in the play-off. We got beat by someone diving in the box at the end. It is still in my head.
“Obviously that was a bad experience. Hopefully there is many more good experiences ahead.
“You want to play where Scotland should play.
“We played at Ibrox and Parkhead which were two great experiences especially Parkhead as it was packed to 60,000 and they got right behind us.
“I am sure it will be the exact same at Hampden. The Tartan Army always make a good noise.”
