  1. That's all folks

    Not much left to say really. It's been an abysmal week for Scottish clubs in Europe, with Rangers and now St Johnstone tumbling out to teams from Luxembourg and Lithuania.

    Let's hope for better next week when Aberdeen and Celtic get started on their continental campaigns.

    Join us for those.

    Bryan Allan: "Dire. Time for summer football."

  3. We are the minnows now

  4. Summer football?

    Is it the answer?

    Or do we simply need to start producing some better players? Easier said than done.

  5. 'Something has to change'

    Gloomy introspection from the Sportsound crew after a grim midweek for Scottish clubs in Europe...

  6. We need more quality - Wright

    FT: FK Trakai 1-0 St Johnstone (3-1)

    St Johnstone manager Tommy Wright talking to BBC Radio Scotland:

    "We totally controlled the game. We got into some good positions. Our approach play was good but we lacked quality in the final third.

    "We had two good crosses and they produced two good saves. The final ball let us down all night.

    "We need to get more quality in to take us to the next level, that means going with a smaller squad or more investment.

    "I'm getting the maximum out of my players but you need that extra quality to break teams down. If we want to retain fourth spot, I need to get players in.

    "You could argue Scottish football in Europe has been in decline for some years. I can't speak for other managers, I can only focus on my team."

  7. Next up

    Aberdeen and Celtic will enter the fray next week.

    The Dons will be at home to Siroki Brijeg in the second round of Europa League qualifying on Thursday.

    Celtic travel to Belfast to take on Linfield in the Champions League on Friday.

    Let's hope for some better news then.

  8. Post update

    FT: FK Trakai 1-0 St Johnstone (3-1)

    It took Saints a season to earn a place in Europe for the fifth time in six years but they crash out at the first hurdle.

    The Lithuanian side had a player sent off in both legs just to rub it in.

    With Rangers' shock exit on Tuesday, that's 50% of Scotland's representatives knocked out before the domestic campaign starts.

  9. FULL-TIME FK Trakai 1-0 St Johnstone (3-1)

    The misery for Scottish football continues.

  11. GOAL FK Trakai 1-0 St Johnstone (3-1)

    Maksim Maksimov, 88 mins

    Ouch! Maksim Maksimov, who scored the opener in Perth, with a composed finish.

    Nothing much changes. Saints still need two goals - to force extra time. I'm clutching at straws now.

  12. Final five

    FK Trakai 0-0 St Johnstone (2-1)

    The clock reaches 85 minutes. Saints need something to happen soon. Very soon.

  13. Post update

    FK Trakai 0-0 St Johnstone (2-1)

    Another free kick and this one is in a very promising situation. David Wotherspoon this time and it flies over the crossbar. Time is running out...

  14. Post update

    FK Trakai 0-0 St Johnstone (2-1)

    Liam Craig is over a free-kick in opposition territory but the keeper is out to punch clear then wins a free kick after getting a wee nudge. It's just not happening for the Perth side.

  15. Post update

    FK Trakai 0-0 St Johnstone (2-1)

    Final change for Saints. Big, burly striker Graham Cummins is on for midfielder Blair Alston. That's officially kitchen sink stuff now but the visitors have rather petered out since that last Joe Shaughnessy miss.

  16. Post update

    FK Trakai 0-0 St Johnstone (2-1)

    Maksim Maksimov does well to kill a high ball dropping out of the sky but he can't squeeze a shot past St Johnstone keeper Zander Clark from a tight angle.

  17. Post update

    FK Trakai 0-0 St Johnstone (2-1)

    Another Saints change. David Wotherspoon replaces Stefan Scougall, who has struggled to make much of an impact.

    Wotherspoon can whip in a good cross. Can he set up a goal to make this interesting?

  18. Post update

    FK Trakai 0-0 St Johnstone (2-1)

    Blair Alston is booked for impeding an opponent. Saints can't afford to let frustration creep in. There is still 18 minutes left on the clock.

  19. Post update

    FK Trakai 0-0 St Johnstone (2-1)

    Just as I write off the home side, Maksim Maksimov cuts in from the right and aims for the top left corner. It's not too far away.

  20. Post update

    FK Trakai 0-0 St Johnstone (2-1)

    If St Johnstone don't get through this, they will be kicking themselves. Trakai don't look up to much at all and defender Joe Shaughnessy, who scored last week, has had three good sights on goal.
