Celtic midfielder Callum McGregor clashed with Scotland coach James McFadden at full-time on Thursday night, after the national team had been humiliated by Kazakhstan in a 3-0 defeat.
Mystery surrounded the bust-up but The Scottish Sun report that captain for the night McGregor was upset that Manchester United prospect Scott McTominay sprinted up the tunnel immediately after the whistle, failing to applaud travelling supporters.
McFadden intervened and with frustrations boiling over a ‘scuffle’ ensued, according to the paper.
The Hoops man played down the incident in his post-match interview but he simply can’t be happy with the current coaching and management set-up given the direction Scotland are heading in.
McGregor is not blameless of course having failed to replicate the kind of form against the Kazakhs that he’s shown for Celtic, but the blame for the national embarrassment has lay at Alex McLeish’s door.
It’s not nice to see Hoops players toil in a clueless tactical system and under a manager out of ideas and out of motivation.
Hopefully for everyone’s sake the Scottish FA decide to make a change soon.
One of the big positives for Celtic fans however is that McGregor got another game under his belt in preparation for the upcoming Rangers clash.
With no reported injuries, he should be in better shape now than he was prior to the Scotland loss.
