Ange Postecoglou has refused to divulge any details about why Greg Taylor has been left out of the Scotland squad.

The Celtic defender has been a regular squad member under Steve Clarke but was posted missing when the Scotland boss named his squad for the double header against Cyprus and Spain.

Clarke was reluctant to go into detail about the decision but did hint at issues and said that it was a matter for Celtic to deal with.

Taylor missed three weeks of action in January due to injury and Celtic’s recent midweek win over Hearts but has been the regular choice at left-back all season and will start tomorrow’s match at home to Hibs.

At today’s media conference Postecoglou wasn’t in the mood to divulge any more details.

Like with all of the international players, you know, we provide all of the relevant information to the national teams then it is upto them to decide whether to call the players up or not.

From our perceptive Greg is available and will play tomorrow, it is the same with Cameron (Carter-Vickers, who has been left out of the USA squad).

It is the same with all of these international players before they go, we give the relevant information then it is upto the national team, their medical team then obviously the manager to decide whether they call them up or they decide to leave them this time for rehab purposes.

After tomorrow’s match Postecoglou can give his non-internationalists a few days off before turning his attention to the Premiership match away to Ross County on April 2.

    Clarke clearly can’t handle the information he is given. I mean, he wants Celtic to elaborate. Have you ever heard as much drivel?
    Typical Scotland Manager Grade though. Like Craigy hearts
    Eh’ You’re Not Winning Your Home Matches Craig”.
    “That’s All Right!”
