Fans of Glasgow Rangers have been reacting to a post on Twitter, in which Gers confirmed which of their players have been called up to the Scotland international squad.
According to a post by the Scottish National Team Twitter account, both Jon McLaughlin and Ryan Jack made the cut for Steve Clarke’s squad to face Austria, Israel and the Faroe Islands for Scotland’s upcoming World Cup qualifying fixtures.
Subsequently, the Rangers Twitter account quote-tweeted this post, adding a message of congratulations to their selected players.
However, in reaction to the news, fans of Rangers flocked to have their say on the matter, with many appearing baffled by Clarke’s omission of 19-year-old Gers right-back, Nathan Patterson, who has highly impressed over his seven appearances in the Scottish Premiership and Europa League this season, averaging a Sofascore match rating of 6.95 domestically and 7.00 in European competition. One supporter called his omission “hysterical”.
Should Patterson have made the Scotland squad?
Meanwhile, other Gers fans claimed they would not be watching the national team in action, as they typically find it a painful experience.
So, what exactly did these Rangers fans have to say in reaction to the announcement?
“Greg Taylor? In a squad that already has Tierney and Robertson? But no place for a right-back playing at a higher level than Taylor, when the squad is crying out for someone who naturally plays right back?! Hysterical.”
“Have a word with them for not picking Nathan Patterson.”
“Brilliant for Ryan and Jon. On a personal note, I certainly won’t be watching – Scotland are a painful watch.”
“Embarrassed by the selection. The fact Taylor is picked over Patterson when we already have to world-class left-backs Man facepalming and need a good and decent right-back would have dropped a striker (McBurnie) for Gilmour as well.”
“It’s a joke to me that Patterson isn’t in there!”
“No Patterson or Turnbull?? Bit strange.”
“Shame about Patterson.”
“Nae McGregor or Patterson?”
