Rangers fans react on Twitter to 22-year-old omission from Scotland squad

By Will Butcher

Rangers fans cannot understand Gordon Strachan’s decision to leave out Barrie McKay from his Scotland squad to face Canada and Slovenia this month.

McKay, 22, has been one of the first names on the Rangers team sheet this season as he continues to shine on the left flank of a three-man attack.

However, manager Gordon Strachan has overlooked the Rangers number 10, instead choosing James Forrest, Matt Phillips, Matt Ritchie and Robert Snodgrass as his options out wide.

The Scottish FA announced the side on their official Twitter account, with only one Rangers player making it into the 30-man squad – captain Lee Wallace.

McKay has been in superb form for the 54-time Scottish champions this season, becoming renowned as somewhat of an assist-master by laying on 11 goals for his side.

Rangers fans reacted with dismay at his omission from the national side on Twitter, with many claiming that it was time for Strachan to leave his post as Scotland boss.

Here is a selection of their messages on Twitter:

McKay was kept quiet during Sunday’s Old Firm derby against Celtic, as the arch enemies drew 1-1 at Celtic Park thanks to veteran defender Clint Hill’s late equaliser.

Scotland face Canada in a friendly on March 22, before going up against Slovenia four days later in Group F of the 2018 World Cup qualifying phase.

In other Rangers news, Neil McCann believes this 42-year-old coach would be perfect to fill the void as new manager Pedro Caixinha’s assistant at Ibrox.
