Scotland can make a winning return to the big time on Monday, according to bookmaker Coral.

The Scots are facing the Czech Republic at Euro 2020 in their first match at a major international tournament for 23 years.

Coral believes they will mark the occasion in the best possible fashion, making Steve Clarke’s men slight 6/4 favourites for the match.

The Czechs are 2/1 to spoil Scotland’s day, while the same odds are available for the match to end in a draw.

Ally McCoist was the last man to score for Scotland at a European Championship, but his goal against Switzerland at Euro 96 could not prevent the team from bowing out at the group stage.

The Rangers and Scotland legend believes this current squad may not experience the same disappointment though.

“I think we will qualify from the group,” said McCoist, who is part of Coral's Matchday Squad for the Euros.

“It is obviously a lot easier now with some third places being enough to make the knockout stages. Anything after that would be a huge bonus and you never know as a lot will depend on how the draw works out.

“If we can make the last 16 it would be amazing and no Scot would complain at that. You only have to look at what Wales achieved at Euro 2016 to show what can be done when the players are together.”
