Midfielder James McArthur has urged the Scottish Football Association to resist any pressure to sack Scotland boss Craig Levein.
A huge question mark hangs over the manager's future after the Scots slumped to the bottom of their World Cup qualifying group.
The 2-0 defeat in Belgium means yet anther campaign is set to end in failure, with France 98 the last time Scotland graced a major finals.
Some members of the Tartan Army made it clear who they want to replace Levein as they unfurled a banner reading 'Strachan SOS' during the defeat in Brussels.
But, as far as McArthur is concerned, the national team already has the right man at the helm in Levein.
The Wigan midfielder said: "I would love him to stay. I think he's a brilliant manager.
"He has done everything right by the players. The players think he's very good and we are just unfortunate that we've not got the results.
"It's down to us players, we should be getting the results.
"The gaffer is putting us out there and we're not doing it - that's all I can really say about that.
"I feel he has set us up right in both games [against Wales and Belgium] and we've not done it on the park. It's down to us, totally."
McArthur confesses that Brazil looks unreachable now but said that the team will get more deserved results if they continue to work hard.
He added: "We worked so hard and just didn't get what I felt we maybe deserved for our hard work in the game."
"We will keep trying, we will keep trying to win matches and if we can get a few wins, it might bring us back into it."
