Rhodes pulled from Scotland squad

Rhodes pulled from Scotland squad

Rovers striker Jordan Rhodes has been withdrawn from the Scotland squad ahead of their upcoming fixtures due to a groin injury.

Rhodes, who has been in fine form for his club side in recent months, was tipped to lead the line this week due to injuries to other strikers in the Scotland squad but will instead have to miss out.

Scotland assistant boss Mark McGhee told Sky Sports, 'Jordan (being out) is a real blow. The manager feels a little bit frustrated that he's not been able to give Jordan a real opportunity.

'Jordan might have got that chance this time around and now he's out. That's a shame, we would have liked Jordan here but these things happen.'

Scotland manager Gordon Strachan has recently been sceptical towards Rhodes' ability to lead the line for his country despite a fine goalscoring record in the Championship.

Hopefully it is just one of those 'injuries' that ruled Ryan Giggs out of many a international.

Injury or "injury"? Hopefully the latter.

You have to wonder what is going on in the Scottish camp with Rhodes. You either choose a player or you don`t. Can`t figure out why they keep bringing Rhodes into the fold then not playing him. I understand if they want to play a way that he is not suited for, but this injury story whenever they play a game will eventually give the player a bad name. Saying that, I hope he isn`t injured.
