WATCH how Germany beat the Scots... in scissors, paper, stone

It's not enough that Scotland went down 2-1 defeat to World Cup winners Germany.

To add insult to injury, the Tartan Army had to endure a second defeat in their Euro 2016 qualifier on Sunday night (Monday Singapore time).

While German player Marco Reus received treatment on an injury, Scotland's James Morrison seemed to challenge Christoph Kramer to a battle of "Scissors’, Paper, Stone" before the match resumed.

We're not sure about the reason.

But the German midfielder – who famously suffered a nasty concussion during the World Cup final on 13 July – decided scissors would be his weapon of choice.

What did Morrison show? His hand was obscured by the German medical team. Still, the smile on Kramer’s face suggested it was another win for the world champions.

Morrison appeared to lay down the challenge as an aerial view showed the West Brom midfielder making the universal gesture for a game, which Kramer accepted.

The Bayer Leverkusen midfielder, who is on loan this season with Bundesliga rivals Borussia Monchengladbach, was seen chuckling to himself after.

He wasn’t the only one: The video has gone viral on social media, getting over 3 million loops.

It’s assumed that the battle decided which team would regain possession once play has resumed.

Result aside, the moment provided a comical moment in what was a tense 2-0 affair.

Thomas Muller has put Germany ahead within 20 minutes. Hope of a Scottish upset was restored in the 66th minute. But it wasn’t to be as Muller struck again just four minutes later to give Joachim Low’s side a winning start.

Scotland sit second bottom of Group D.
