Steve Clarke has revealed that ‘Rangers’ have a little issue with Jon McLaughlin.

Last night, on the eve of testing before facing Real Alashkert in Armenia the club admitted that players have tested positive with close contacts self-isolating.

Today the club face a six hour flight to Armenia, having to choose from a squad that shared a four hour coach journey back from Dingwall on Sunday.

McLaughlin has made three first team appearances this season including the first two SPFL matches and a Cup tie against Dunfermline.

The former keeper was part of Clarke’s European Championship squad in the summer but has been replaced by uncapped duo and Liam Kelly for next week’s internationals.

Clarke told the Daily Record:

Jon’s got a little issue at Rangers. Rangers told us he wasn’t available so he misses out. He’s always been in our squad and he’s played a few games this season.

I watched him play at and he’s expecting to play a few more games this season. When he’s fit and available he’ll be at the front of my mind for selection.

The squad fly out from Airport at lunchtime today, the flight list will reveal who else have little issues.
