Motherwell defender, Declan Gallagher, admits he was close to tears knowing his friends and family were there to watch him make his Scotland debut.

The centre-half put in a solid performance as Scotland won 2-1 in Cyprus.

Gallagher’s wife Niki and four-year-old daughter Shay were in the stands, along with both sets of their parents – and the 28-year-old was a proud man.

Gallagher said: “I was absolutely delighted to get my first cap and also get a win away from home.

“It’s amazing and I am delighted for all the boys as well.

“I knew my family were up the back of the stand a lot of people watching back home and to stand and to sing your national anthem and play for your country is a dream. It was absolutely amazing.

“My missus and my wee one were desperate to come over. My mum and dad were over in Russia and my wife and wee girl are at every game.

“And, obviously, to have my missus’ mum and dad there as well was amazing. I said to my missus after the game, I felt like crying knowing that she and my daughter were there to see me get my first cap.”

Gallagher was dominant in defence and in the air, stopping Cyprus players from getting headers on goal from good positions.
