Swansea defender could dislodge Rangers hero

Quoted by heraldscotland.com, former Welsh international Leighton James has told Gordon Strachan that he should play Stephen Kingsley for Scotland against England in their upcoming World Cup Qualifier.

Kingsley plays as a left-back for Swansea and has made six Premier League appearances this season in that position, with James feeling he is more than good enough to play for the Tartan Army.

Scotland’s usual left-backs Kieran Tierney and Andrew Robertson have both been ruled out of the clash and the Welshman feels the Swans man should get ahead of Lee Wallace in the Scots’ pecking order.

“It’s Gordon’s choice. He’s got to decide if Stephen Kingsley, who has limited experience but is playing at a high level, is better than Lee Wallace, who has a lot more experience, but at a far lower level”, said James.

”Up until this season, Lee Wallace was playing in the lower divisions in Scotland. It’s a big call for Gordon. It’s a massive game.

”They don’t come any bigger than England v Scotland at Wembley.

”I am slightly biased as a Swansea City fan, but I would pick Stephen.”

Wallace is currently with Rangers and helped them get through the divisions into the Scottish top flight this season and it seems as though one of those two will represent Scotland against the Three Lions.

England are currently top of the group whilst Scotland sit in fourth, three points behind their great rivals.

As low as the Swans propping up the bar in the Transfer Tavern have been feeling this season as a result of their form, they’re inclined to agree over their academy prospect.
