Can't see anything official from the club but the Times are going with a torn hamstring being the reason McKenna had to come off against Killie. Explains the omission from the Scotland squad, tbh a few weeks out to sort his head out after the transfer request debacle is no bad thing.

How the fuck has Devlin been called up to the squad and Consi hasn't?!? Devlin is fucking awful these days (thought there was a thread on consi by KFP  ??? )

Good to see Shankland called up. Breaking the mould and actually having a form player in the squad.

Full squad as Manc is to lazy to put it up.

Goalkeepers: Craig MacGillivray (Portsmouth), David Marshall (Wigan Athletic), Jon McLaughlin (Sunderland)
 
Defenders: Liam Cooper (Leeds United), Michael Devlin (Aberdeen), Grant Hanley (Norwich City), Charlie Mulgrew (Wigan Athletic), Stephen O'Donnell (Kilmarnock),
 
Liam Palmer (Sheffield Wednesday), Andrew Robertson (Liverpool), Greg Taylor (Celtic)
 
Midfielders: Ryan Christie (Celtic), John Fleck (Sheffield United), Ryan Jack (Rangers), John McGinn (Aston Villa), Callum McGregor (Celtic), Kenny McLean (Norwich City), Scott McTominay (Manchester United), Robert Snodgrass (West Ham)
 
Forwards: Oliver Burke (Alaves), James Forrest (Celtic), Ryan Fraser (AFC Bournemouth), Oliver McBurnie (Sheffield United), Johnny Russell (Sporting Kansas City), Lawrence Shankland (Dundee United)

As has been said Devlin being picked ahead of Considine is odd. Good to see Shankland being called up but on the whole the squad looks really shite and can only see a defeat in Russia. Will at least beat San Marino at home.

Surprised that Matt Phillips is not in the squad as thought he was one of the few who played well in last series of games.

There's a reason why none of the SPL clubs took a punt on him. Offers nothing except goalscoring. When Ayr went right off the boil in the second half of last season at times he was benched for a number of games. In the system we play he would look just as bad as he did in his spell with us.

The one club where he could do really well is sevco, who supposedly were credited with an an interest last year but never followed through. He needs service to be effective and they have plenty players to provide that. He might cost them a million now but it would be pretty much risk free for them, he'd certainly be 3rd choice at best but Freddo will eventually pick up suspensions in the New Year and Defoe at his age wont recover from injuries as quickly as he did 5 years ago.

Beyond beggars belief how he's getting a call up ahead of consi, let alone a start. Scapegoat central here we come.

Managed to get a couple for the first half, but a wee bit buffery. Will give strike out a try in the second.

Devlin majestic so far. Looking good for a place on the dons' bench in the coming weeks.

To be fair to Clarke, we struggled with our two left sided centre halves in the last few games, with the opposition getting a lot of shots where the left-sider (Mulgrew, mainly) kept showing them inside. I can see why he wanted a right-fitter, and Devlin is a solid defender despite his passing being pap.

That was a grim second half. Mulgrew excellent at turning up for Scotland, rarely misses a game. Unfortunately he's not that good a defender anymore. Good on the ball, but loses his man regularly and never holds the line. The third would have been avoided if he had just played the guy off at the back post for example. That said, the big cunt up front was different class like. Devlin didn't do much wrong and didn't do much right.

Shankland gets his first international goal. Latest score Scotland 5 San Marino 0. Pitch is a quagmire, ball sticking in patches. Good chance if it were a domestic match it would get abandoned

Shankland. DM should be sacked alone for that one. Let him walk for free at a time we were starting to look to replace Rooney. Penalty box poacher that suites our style of play at the time perfectly. Not sure of his contract but if under contract will move from United for a million plus.

Shankland was pap for us and anyone who claims we were wrong to punt him is wrong. It wasn’t even our getting rid of him that sorted his attitude out, it was when Morton ditched him that he finally realised he was wasting his career.
Can you blame the man for going out of his mind temporarily?

Don’t agree with you. Never given a real chance. If we’d given him the time and patience we gave Cosgrove we may have found a player.
