We’re hearing a lot about Scotland’s lineup last night, that there were no Celtic players starting and that Ryan Jack did.

And the lot we’re hearing comes from Rangers fans scathing of Steve Clarke and accusing him of anti-Rangers management.

Regulars will know we’re far from big fans of the Scotland boss, with enough criticism of him to last an age, but for once, we’re not going to call him out, and in fact will defend him.

Fans complaining Ryan Jack was the most likely to get injured, and that Clarke was saving the Celtic players for the Old Firm match were truly sounding like the classic paranoid tim.

Jack hadn’t played for Scotland pretty much since 2020. The guy needs minutes, especially for the NT. This was a friendly. This would have been 100% sanctioned and monitored by Rangers and we’re frankly glad he’s continuing to build back up to fitness, in prep for the run in.

Meanwhile the outrage that Greg Taylor and Callum McGregor were being rested was kind of ludicrous. A friendly international was the perfect chance to give lesser-used players a chance, to get them minutes in their Scottish legs, and it’s not like the above two haven’t played for their country before.

If Jack hadn’t played, fans would have complained about the opposite, that Clarke was ignoring Rangers players again and ‘what the f*ck did he get the call up for’.

On this occasion, we want Jack ready for Sunday. And frankly Clarke did us a favour giving him a run out to get more prep.

So, for us, while we don’t like the NT or Clarke these days, this is one rage factor we won’t subscribe to.

  1. I disagree Clarke is green leaning and anti the Famous, look at his comments and behaviours the wretch . I wouldn’t trust a word he said .

    • Disagree with what? At no point did the article say anything that contrasts what you’re saying here Bill.

  2. I think the arguement Rangers fans have is valid. He could have given Jack minutes from the start against Poland and rested him for this, like he did with the other two but to leave them off entirely in the second game and have Jack playing only gives one team extra recovery time and preparation for Sunday. Just glad he came through unscathed.
