Scottish FA chief confirms clubs have concerns over circus affecting Rangers stars

Scottish FA chief Ian Maxwell has admitted that clubs have been in contact with him with concerns over the circus surrounding Scotland’s Nations League clash with the Czech Republic as Rangers stars Ryan Jack, Jon McLaughlin and Robby McCrorie are caught in the middle.

The Czechs initially insisted Monday’s game was off before UEFA intervened and will now see Steve Clarke’s side take on a weakened Czech Republic side in Olomouc.

Maxwell confirmed that national team doc John MacLean will be speaking to club doctors of the players involved as the Rangers trio prepare for the clash.

“Obviously clubs are concerned – we have had one or two phone calls from club chief execs just asking for the latest update and asking what the current situation is,” Maxwell said on BBC Sportsound.

“We have been able to tell them what is the case and obviously Dr [John] MacLean is heavily involved with the medical staff we’ve got that have a club involvement and are there with the national squad.

“He will be there speaking to his counterparts at clubs just to reassure them about the situation.”

Ryan Jack was the only one of the Rangers players involved in Friday’s draw with Israel at Hampden in their Nations League opener at Hampden, with Gers fans baffled over the decision to leave Jon McLaughlin out of the starting XI.

The Gers keeper has made a fantastic start to his Ibrox career and will be hoping he gets the chance to win his third cap on Monday night.
