Friday 24th March

 

FOOTBALL

Scotland defender Andrew Robertson insists the players remain behind manager Gordon Strachan. He goes into Sunday's World Cup qualifier at home to Slovenia under pressure - with the team second from bottom in Group F. Wednesday night also saw Scotland booed off after being held to a 1-1 friendly draw with Canada.

On loan St Johnstone defenders Liam Gordon and Aaron Comrie could miss Peterhead's League 1 visit of Stranraer tomorrow.  Gordon picked up an injury in training this week while Comrie is unwell.  The Blue Toon are bidding to end a seven match winless run to pull themselves away from relegation trouble. 

Formartine have another must-win match in the Highland League as they look to keep alive their faint title hopes.  Kris Hunter's team visit Brora, who themselves are eyeing the championship.  Fraserburgh head for Inverurie in an Aberdeenshire derby. 

MOTORSPORT

Lewis Hamilton says he's relieved his Mercedes car improved from testing to help him dominate the opening two practice sessions ahead of Sunday's Australian F1 Grand Prix. The three-time world champion set the quickest time in Melbourne today.  His new team-mate Valtteri Bottas was third fastest, with Ferrari's Sebastian Vettel second. Qualifying for the first race of the season takes place tomorrow.

RUGBY

Scotland full-back Stuart Hogg has won the Six Nations Player of the Championship award. It's the second year in a row he's been voted the tournament's best player. He helped Scotland to 4th in the table - and was instrumental in victories over Ireland and Wales.

CRICKET

Kyle Koetzer has been reappointed as Scotland's permanent cricket captain. The batsman had been given the role on an interim basis for their tour of the United Arab Emirates in January. Koetzer was first made skipper in 2013 - but lost the job after getting injured in the build-up to the 2015 World Cup.

GOLF

Rory McIlroy is out of the World Golf Championships Match Play in Texas. The second seed was eliminated after Denmark's Soren Kjeldsen won his second match 4 and 3. McIlroy was handed victory in his second round after opponent Gary Woodland withdrew due to personal issues. Masters champion Danny Willett also failed to get out of his group after
suffering a second successive defeat. Lee Westwood could progress by beating Pat Perez later today.

TENNIS

Roger Federer continued his dream start to the year by winning the Indian Wells Masters title. The Australian Open champion beat Swiss compatriot Stan Wawrinka in straight sets. At 35 years of age, Federer becomes the oldest winner in the tournament's history.  Meanwhile Andy Murray has withdrawn from the Miami Masters with an elbow injury.  The Scot is now focussed on getting ready for the clay-court season.
