Clarke and Jones worked together at Rugby Park with both departing this summer, and Jones admitted that he sent the new Scotland boss a message of congratulations after being appointed.
The Northern Irish winger insists players will need to be “fully committed” or Clarke simply won’t involve them in the national set-up.
“I spoke to him when he got the job and sent him a message to say, ‘Well done and fully deserved’,” Jones said, as quoted by the Scottish Sun.
“I hope he enjoys it and does well. I have no doubt he’ll be a success.
“As a manager he is brilliant, but his speciality is coaching. He is one of the best, so I’m sure he will shine.
“There will be no players deciding if and when they come in. They’ll have to be fully committed, otherwise, the gaffer won’t have them involved.”
Clarke’s first squad get together is taking place just now ahead of the Euro 2020 qualifiers this week with Belgium and Cyprus.
After poor results against Kazakhstan and San Marino in the first round of games, Scotland needs two positive results from these games to have a shot at qualifying.
Rangers fans might only have limited interest however after no Gers made the squad – despite Ryan Jack being in stellar form.
