  1. Enjoy the close season

    Well, incredibly, Scottish football season 2016-17 begins on 30 June when Hearts and Aberdeen play their Europa League qualifiers. Thanks very much indeed for visiting BBC Scotland's website throughout the season. We look forward to your company and contributions in three and a half weeks' time. Good night.

  2. Post-match reaction

    France 3-0 Scotland

    Former Rangers midfielder Derek Ferguson on Radio Scotland: "In hindsight I don't think we should have taken these two games against Italy and France, because the confidence has been shot a bit. I think it has had an adverse effect, and could have put us back a bit. Our next game is against Malta and of course we are capable of beating them. Hopefully we will get a bit of confidence and a feel-good factor back in that game."     

  3. When Ali came to Glasgow

    If the result in Metz has left you reeling, imagine how veteran reporter and avid Scotland fan Chick Young is feeling tonight. Earlier, he shared his memories of meeting the late, great Muhammad Ali, one of his sporting heroes.

  4. Post-match reaction

    France 3-0 Scotland

    We may be light on post-match reaction this evening because there's a rush to the airport to catch a flight. However, if there's a chance of an interview you can be sure our reporter Alasdair Lamont will get it for us. It would be interesting to hear what Scotland manager Gordon Strachan made of the 90 minutes.

  5. Scotland 'miles away' from French

    France 3-0 Scotland

    Former Scotland assistant boss Peter Houston on Radio Scotland: "There may have been a bit of end-of-season stuff going on, with players mentally switching off and coming up against better quality players. I am sure Gordon [Strachan] will re-group and in September they have to be at it because it is important they get a good start in their World Cup group if we are to qualify for the first time in many years. Tonight has shown we are miles away from being a class side like the French."

  6. FULL-TIME

    France 3-0 Scotland

    The Scottish football season has ended.

  7. CLOSE!

    France 3-0 Scotland

    Antoine Griezmann rises well and heads powerfully a foot over the crossbar from 12 yards.

  8. ADDED TIME

    France 3-0 Scotland

    Mercifully, there are only two minutes of injury time for Scotland to endure.

  9. Les Bleus

    France 3-0 Scotland

    Well, this has to go down as ideal preparation for France, if the aim was to boost confidence and generate a feel-good factor in the country. France get the Euro finals under way on Friday with a match against Romania, with games against Albania and Switzerland to follow.

  10. 'McKay has flair Scotland lack'

    France 3-0 Scotlamd

    Former Rangers midfielder Derek Ferguson on Radio Scotland: "McKay has got that flair that we sadly lack at the moment.  I wish Rangers would let him off the leash a little bit because he has got plenty of ability. Hopefully he will enjoy playing against some top-class players."

  11. Scottish sub

    France 3-0 Scotland

    And young McKay is on for James McArthur.

  12. CLOSE!

    France 3-0 Scotland

    Gordon Greer fails to match the run of Yohan Cabaye but Scotland avoid conceding a fourth goal as the Crystal Palace man flicks the ball just over the bar from eight yards. Meanwhile, Rangers winger Barrie McKay is about to come on to make his Scotland debut. He was described by Steven Naismith earlier in the week as the most "non-Scottish type of player".

  13. Marshall a lone bright spot

    France 3-0 Scotland

    Former Scotland assistant boss Peter Houston on Radio Scotland: "The only player who has stood up for Scotland has been David Marshall. He has been brilliant. It shows we are still producing good goalkeepers. He has always stood up to the pressure. It was another wonderful save, otherwise it would have been 4-0."

  14. French Open coverage

    While Scotland's footballers are evidently struggling in France, one Scottish sporting star could lift the spirits of the nation tomorrow. Andy Murray plays Novak Djokovic in the final of the French Open at Roland Garros and you can enjoy the build-up and live match commentary on BBC Radio Scotland 92-95 FM, 810 medium wave, online and digital platforms. Coverage begins at midday.

  15. Painful viewing

    France 3-0 Scotland

    Scotland manager Gordon Strachan looks exasperated as coach Stuart McCall watches the game unfold.

  17. Slip, sliding away

    France 3-0 Scotland

    France substitute Yohan Cabaye slips at just the wrong moment and his shot from outside the box slides into the arms of David Marshall.

  18. From Swansea to Metz (change at Crewe)

    France 3-0 Scotland

    As a yardstick of Scotland's struggle for top-class players to match this exciting French side, Swansea City's Stephen Kingsley, five appearances for the club to date and on loan at League One Crewe last season, enters the fray as Robert Snodgrass leaves the field.

  19. HITS THE WOODWORK

    France 3-0 Scotland

    With David Marshall beaten and with the rain thumping down, Scotland enjoy some good fortune as Paul Pogba's free-kick cracks off the upright.

  20. Au revoir, Olivier

    France 3-0 Scotland

    James McArthur is penalised for a foul on Blaise Matuidi 25 yards from goal in a central position, but prior to the free-kick being taken Olivier Giroud goes off as sub Andre-Pierre Gignac comes on.
