Scott Brown has rubbished calls for Craig Levein to step down or be sacked in the wake of Scotland's dismal start to their 2014 World Cup qualifiers, which saw them drop four points in their opening two home games.
A section of the Tartan Army have demanded a change of manager after the 1-1 draw with Macedonia at Hampden on Tuesday night, which followed the goalless draw against Serbia on Saturday.
It was hoped the Scots would get off to a flier with maximum points but they are already trailing Serbia, Croatia and Belgium in Group A by two points.
The Celtic skipper missed both qualifiers with a hip injury but is hoping to be back for the double header away to Wales and Belgium next month.
Asked if the pleas for Levein to go this early in the campaign were over the top, Brown said: "Yes, definitely. He is a good manager.
"We start with 4-5-1, we try to go forward, we create chances but it's just not been happening, yet.
"I think we have played quite well, we have just been unlucky here and there not to score goals but the lads have given everything.
"We are only two points behind the teams at the top of the group so there are a lot of games to play, still 24 points out there, so wait and see what we can do."
