Scotland were knocked out of the tournament after losing 3-1 to Croatia at Hampden Park on Tuesday.

The result ensured Croatia progressed to the last-16, along with England who topped Group D after beating Czech Republic, who are also in line to earn a spot in the next round.

Scotland captain Robertson has since released a heartfelt statement on social media and apologised to fans for his team's failure.

He tweeted: "Where to even start?! I suppose the first thing to do is to say that we are sorry for falling short in the end. We desperately wanted to make even more history but we didn't quite get there and it hurts."

Robertson added: "Seeing the entire country not only following what we've done and supporting us but lifting us every step of the way made a big difference. From the incredible support of the Tartan Army to the kids in the street wearing Scotland shirts, we've felt your love and been inspired by it."

The Liverpool star continued: "To captain this country and these boys means the world to me and the feeling I've had leading them out in a tournament is impossible to describe! What matters now is that we do all that we can to ensure that this is the start of a wonderful journey rather than the end."

In another tweet, he wrote: "We want more. We want to qualify for more tournaments and we want to make the people of this magnificent country even prouder! We will give everything we have to make this a reality. Scotland it's been a pleasure."

Steve Clarke's side kept their qualification hopes alive heading into Tuesday's match following their heroic goalless draw with England last Friday.

But defeat to Croatia saw them finish bottom of the group in their first major tournament since 1998.
