There was always a worry that Scotland’s South American tour at the end of a long and gruelling season would be a waste of time, and so far it has turned out to be that way for the Celtic players involved.

Lewis Morgan was the only player to feature in the 2-0 loss to Peru, as a second-half substitute.

Meanwhile, the trio of Scott Bain, Jack Hendry and Ryan Christie were unused subs.

There is a good chance that the players will feature in the end of tour match against Mexico, but the trio should have been involved after giving up valuable rest to travel on the tour.

Brendan Rodgers and Alex McLeish had discussions before the tour about the number of Celtic players to go on the tour, as the Hoops start Champions League qualifiers in July.

The likes of Callum McGregor and Kieran Tierney has missed the trip as a result, but perhaps Rodgers is thinking that he should have withdrawn the possibilities of any Hoops players going on the tour.

The players will return to Scotland in a few days, and then sooner than they know it will be back in pre-season training for the Hoops.

The trio should at least start the match against Mexcio to make the trip seem somewhat worthwhile, otherwise it has been a wash-up which Rodgers should keep in mind the next time there’s an international friendly.
