Ally McCoist aims hilarious dig at Rodri in response to his time-wasting claims
| Last updated
Ally McCoist has hilariously hit back at Rodri after he ripped into Scotland's time-wasting following Spain's defeat on Tuesday.
Scotland stunned Spain in their Euro 2024 qualifier, beating Luis Enrique's side 2-0 with Scott McTominay scoring both goals as they secured a famous win.
The defeat didn't go down well with Rodri, who slammed Scotland's tactics and accused them of 'not playing football' in an astonishing rant.
"It’s the way they play - for me it’s a bit rubbish. It’s always wasting time, they provoke you, they always fall. For me, this is not football," he said after the result.
"The referee has to take a part in this but he said nothing. It’s a bit frustrating because we want to win and it’s difficult because they waste time, waste time. It is what it is.
"They have their weapons, we have our weapons, and we will learn for next time."
The Manchester City midfielder added: "They played a good game, the grass is no excuse, they have their conditions. The first goal has conditioned us a lot. They they played with five behind, tightly closed. We had options, but the ball didn't go in.
"It is clear that the two that they have had have put them in. We have tried, two posts, one from a very clear set piece. We must polish those oversights, those errors that are expensive.
"The feeling is that it is one of those days that it you're doing well, but it doesn't quite come in. There are no doubts at all, we don't want to start with that please. Many things have been done well.
"The score counts, we have to improve those forgetfulness, specific errors that have penalized us. This is a collective effort."

Scotland legend McCoist has since responded to Rodri's outrageous claim as he poked fun at the Premier League star.
"We were just a wee bit too physical for Rodri," he said on talkSPORT. "We were rubbish, was that the word he used?
"Bless his wee Spanish heart," the 60-year-od added, before laughing.
