Scotland Centre Backs

Probably went under the radar, but Scott McKenna was immense in the air when he had to cover for Grant Hanley against Croatia, didn't lose a single ball. It's a good battle between him and Declan Gallagher for the 2nd choice central centre back. Looking forward to seeing how Declan Gallagher gets on at Aberdeen this season.

Jack Hendry is one of the players who will miss the next match if booked in the game against Denmark. Should that happen who would be the best choice as a replacement should that happen in the absence of McTominay? Gallagher or Hanley are the centre backs that typically play on the right hand side but their strengths don't really match Hendry in a similar way that Cooper doesn't fully replace Tierney.

The other players walking the suspension tightrope apparently are Christie, Dykes, Hanley, Nisbet and O'Donnell.

Get them all booked if possible, cause Moldova are gash and you don't want anyone missing more important games.

Except O'Donnell

How have Oostende managed to buy him for €1.5m and flip him for €10m within two months? 

IIRC a loan to buy deal initially, for €1.5 million, so at the end of the season took Celtic up on the offer (I think for there record transfer fee), with the intention of perhaps selling for more anyway.

Jason Kerr off to League 1 with Wigan. Hard to see him getting called up from there.

It's frustrating to see promising and established players (Kerr and Christie) potentially moving to pish clubs. Money trumps international football I'm afraid

Christie going to a top Championship club is fine - they want to dominate possession in that league and he's still playing at a good standard. It's arguably better for his game than playing for Burnley. Kerr going to League 1 seems like a bit of a waste though - there must surely have been Championship interest.
