“In the second-half, we got in some great positions, some great chances, great effort, good on the ball. They’ve had one or two shots at goal and scored with one of them.
“We’ve done really well to get back in the game, and, really, we should have won. So, I’ve got to say well done to the lads for dragging us back into the game, playing so well and nearly getting the winner.
“We had some good chances, and a wee bit of bad luck, as well. I thought well done, we stuck at it, going a goal behind is never easy, but this group is going to be like that and it could be a big point come the end.”
Strachan, however, accepted there would be negativity surrounding his side after a game they were expected to win.
“So, a lot of people will be going home a little disgruntled.”
Strachan also revealed that captain Darren Fletcher, who was replaced by McArthur at the interval after complaining of a thigh problem, will strugglle to be fit for the trip to Slovakia on Tuesday.
