STEPHEN McMANUS has tipped Scott McKenna and Jack Hendry to become ‘top players’ for Scotland but reckons it could take five years.

But Hendry did not have as good a time of it at Hampden, with the Celtic stopper gifting possession in the build-up to Portugal’s late third goal.

He said: “I’m a big fan of Scott McKenna.
“He’s strong, dominant, never afraid go in tight with strikers because he can trust he’ll recover with his pace and power.

“The two of them are talented players, McKenna and Hendry, but both are young and they’re going to make mistakes.
“Jack Hendry, for me, has to become an instinctive defender and think ‘danger’ and put himself in the right positions.
“That will come with more games but he still always wants to take the ball. He showed tremendous courage and bravery to still want possession.
