Celtic have been forced to explain their stance on international football after being swamped with demands to withdraw players.

Within the space of 24 hours Ryan Christie and Odsonne Edouard were ruled out of Neil Lennon’s preparations for the Glasgow derby on October 17.

There is debate over when Edouard will be able to return to Scotland and re-join training while Christie is facing a fortnight in self-isolation because he enjoyed a socially distant game on the Play Station 4.

The SFA have been predictably quiet on the Christie issue prompting Celtic and Christie into questioning how they are implementing the protocols.

Celtic’s statement didn’t placate fans with the club taking to Twitter later on Wednesday night.

As well as players Celtic are currently providing the SFA with a goalkeeping coach (Stevie Woods) and a physio (Tim Williamson). Callum McGregor and Greg Taylor are still with Steve Clarke’s squad.

Scotland face Israel tonight followed by Slovakia on Sunday and the Czech Republic on Wednesday.
