Aston Villa right-back Alan Hutton has retired from Scotland duty – and fans on Twitter were hoping he would do the same with his club team.
The 31-year-old defender stated that he wants to “spend more time with family” and concentrate on club football.
Gordon Strachan’s side take on England in a World Cup qualifier on November 11 at Wembley with Hutton having earned 50 caps for his country.
Upon hearing the news many Villa fans mocked the full-back as they thought he had already retired from his club team.
Many did question the ability of the former Rangers and Tottenham player, but one supporter did state that regardless of his ability he is a committed player.
Here is a selection of their messages on Twitter:
Hutton: "I feel this is the right time to spend more time with family and put everything I have professionally into Villa." #avfc

Hutton's retired from Scotland? Thought he'd retired from Villa years ago. #avfc

Hutton's ability at times is questionable but you can't knock his effort for the club. Fair play to him #avfc

Hutton played the full match as Villa beat Blackburn 2-1 on home soil on Saturday afternoon as new manager Steve Bruce has introduced him back into the first-team plans.
The Glasgow-born player has played seven Championship and EFL Cup games for the Midlands side this season where he has picked up two yellow cards.
Hutton played on 28 occasions for Villa last term as wretched player performances saw the club relegated into the second-tier.
