New Scotland manager Steve Clarke announced his first ever Scotland squad for the upcoming matches with Cyrpus and Belgium.
The former Killie boss is not exactly the biggest fan of Rangers. In turn, many Rangers fans aren’t the biggest of him.
But in Clarke’s first ever Scotland squad he didn’t include a single Rangers player. And unsurprisingly, many Rangers fans on Twitter aren’t upset about it at all.

 


The inference from the media storm surrounding the omission of any Rangers players is that Steve Clarke has omitted them because they play for Rangers. Really? C’mon.
Away from the fact Rangers fans really don’t care, there has been minimal Scottish influence on the Rangers side. Ryan Jack aside, are any Rangers fans seriously going to argue the toss?
There are murmurs of discontent about Jack’s exclusion. Clarke did include the likes of Graeme Shinnie after all.
But Shinnie aside, it’s a fair battle against the rest of the players in that midfield. Jack would do well to take any one of their places.
And the thing is, Rangers fans aren’t even as remotely upset by this as some perhaps might want them to be.

In fact, the overwhelming majority – online at least – appear like they couldn’t care less. That’s something that probably says more about the state of play concerning the club’s relationship with the national side than anything else.
And even if there are no Rangers players in the latest Scotland squad, one first-team star certainly would’ve made it had he answered Steve Clarke’s call.
