Fixed that for you.

Absolutely not surprised one iota. 

Tbh, I'd honestly have thought Clarke would have been fairer but evidently not. Unless he's just scared to make wholesale changes given it's his first squad.

There's no way McLean, who has only played about 20 times this season at Norwich or Shinnie, who is just an athlete, are better footballers than Ryan Jack.

Tbf McLean was injured and came into the side during the run in and did well.

There’s a real lack of quality in that squad. Majority of it made up of mid-table Scottish Premiership teams. 

Scotland should be aiming to be in a group of country’s just under your big nations in order to qualify for things alongside the likes of Austria, Serbia etc but they all have players playing in the biggest leagues across Europe.

I think Jack will be in future squads, likewise McCrorie.

From a club perspective probably good that our players get a decent break given how quickly the Europa games will come around. But you would hope that we would see greater International representation by a lot of the squad next year - good for players experience and also increases a players value.

I see a few on ( so obsessed they sought out this thread) with 'the fuck Scotland' stuff - shame they don't know the history of our club and the pride players took and will take in representing their country.

 It's an awful squad with awful options up top. McBurnie scored 22 goals in the Championship and isn't in the squad :lol:

 

Clarke said McBurnie was injured, hence not selected.

Thought Jordan Rhodes might have made the squad, he seemed to have had a decent season down south

He was playing LB though.

McLean defo deserves to be in over Jack. Personally I don't think Jack is any better or more deserving to be in before Shinnie, but each to their own.

Aye at left back.

He’s been picked as a midfielder here as Taylor has been called up as back up to Robertson.

Picked as a midfielder though in this squad, as you say. Unless he was playing GK after a freak incident, no matter where he was playing that night he should never have been seen in a Scotland shirt again. Rewarding failure.
