Ryan Fraser is not in the U21 squad - I was wondering whether he was going to appear in the full squad but obviously now.  ???

Suits me fine, less chance of him getting fucked over by some cunt.
Please to see Hutton in particular getting left out.
Personally speaking even though he hasn't played last couple of games for Cardiff I'd have given McNaughton one last chance of being an internationalist

Apparently Craig Brown spoke to SFA about not picking Fraser as he wants to give him a rest.

Surpirsed Paul Dixon and Snodgrass have been omitted but Whittaker is back in without playing for Norwich.

Good to see Danny Fox is out after seeing off yet another manager.

Totally agree with regards to Fraser and Hutton. Give Fraser a rest, I would have him retired from international duty if it means he keeps his best for Aberdeen!

Hutton getting picked by Levein was one decision which particularly grinded me. He's nowhere near the Villa first team at the moment and hasn't played a club game since last season but he is an automatic pick for Scotland? Jesus christ, he's no Cafu. He's been shite since it all went downhill at Spurs and I wouldn't consider him a certainty to make the squad, let alone the first XI. McNaughton has been one of the best right backs ootside the Premiership for a few years now and has definitely done more than most to warrant a call up. Strange, maybe it's because he's from Aberdeen.

Fucking abysmal player. Just been nowhere near the Scotland squad whatsoever in any form or capacity.

He's only won four caps and the last of them came in 2008. Surely he has deserved a game since then? Especially given the likes of Kirk Broadfoot (who also hae four caps) and Danny Fox have gotten caps since then.

None of them should be near the squad.

My biggest regret in life is not putting money on Broadfoot FGS in Iceland at 33/1. :(

Andy Shinnie and Leigh Griffiths have been called up. No word yet on who they're replacing.

Scotland Interim National Coach Billy Stark has called-up a hat-trick of international debutants for Wednesday’s International Challenge Match against Luxembourg.

Kilmarnock’s Liam Kelly, Hibernian’s Leigh Griffiths and Inverness Caledonian Thistle’s Andrew Shinnie have all had their club form recognised after a series of weekend withdrawals.

Scotland will be without nine players from the original squad: James Morrison (groin), Phil Bardsley (hamstring), Steven Fletcher (ankle), Shaun Maloney (abdominal), Charlie Adam (groin), Matt Phillips (toe), Barry Bannan (knee), David Marshall (groin), Jamie Mackie (ankle).

However, Billy has used the opportunity to introduce fresh talent to the A squad. Kelly, Griffiths and Shinnie have been joined by Paul Dixon, the Huddersfield Town full back, and Craig Samson, the St Mirren goalkeeper.

“Obviously at this stage of the season, with players playing weekend and midweek, niggles and strains and withdrawals are to be expected,” said the national coach. “This match gives us an opportunity to look at players who maybe have not been had experience of the international set-up but who have been in tremendous form at their clubs.

“Leigh has been excellent for Hibernian and scored again yesterday. I know him from the under-21s and he is a talented player. Liam has been terrific for Kilmarnock and it is fitting that he gets an opportunity, while Andrew has been a real inspiration behind Inverness’s success so far this season.

“I wanted to keep the under-21 squad as settled as possible because they have a tough game against Portugal, and I know what the more experienced players who have not made the squad are capable of at this level so there is an element of experimentation to the additions.”


Out: James Morrison (groin), Phil Bardsley (hamstring), Steven Fletcher (ankle), Shaun Maloney (abdominal), Charlie Adam (groin), Matt Phillips (toe), Barry Bannan (knee), David Marshall (groin), Jamie Mackie (ankle).

In: Paul Dixon, Craig Samson, Andrew Shinnie, Liam Kelly, Leigh Griffiths.
