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.

“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.”
