Squad lends support to rumours on the go that no Aberdeen player will be getting a game for Scotland while McGhee is manager....I mean assistant manager.

 

What a cunt if true (which going on form would be true). Unbelievable that MR has been overlooked.

 

On the positive, less chance of getting injured playing during a pointless friendly.

I don't buy that for a second.  I really don't, IMO our players are not being selected for this pretty meaningless away friendly (this is a jolly for the away support, i.e. lets go play somewhere where the booze is cheap and the birds are hot) because their club (who both manager and assistant had very successful and happy periods at lest we forget) is competing really well in all competitions with a squad that does not have an over-abundance of depth.  This is a far more likely scenario than the asst manager of a national team that also has little depth vetoing any promising players on the basis that they are coming from the wrong club dontchathink? That just sounds ridiculous to me, can you honestly imagine that Strachan would tolerate for a second his assistant being so fucking petty?  I've heard Gordon Strachan being described as many things but never as a man that suffer fools lightly.  Cmon guys we're not fucking celtic fans, lets stop being paranoid.
