The Sunderland striker had a poor game in Tbilisi.
Scotland’s hopes of qualifying for the European Championships in France took a hammer blow last night as they were downed 1-0 in Georgia.
They lost the game courtesy of a Valeri Qazaishvilli goal in the 38th minute and in all honesty Scotland never really looked like threatening, with their striker Steven Fletcher in the firing line for fans.
The Sunderland frontman had a poor game in Tbilisi and has not exactly ever won over the Scotland fans in recent times.
He has never performed at his best in a Scotland shirt and the fans were thoroughly disappointed to see him in the starting XI ahead of Celtic star Leigh Griffiths.
He has one goal this season for Sunderland, netting on the opening day against Leicester City, but overall his form for the Black Cats has been poor this term, and in recent times his shooting boots have gone missing.
But his overall game was bad, as he failed to bring other players into the game and struggled to have any major involvement.
Scotland fans have clearly had enough and many of them have taken to Twitter, calling on Fletcher to no longer be the number one Scottish striker…

Found @stevenfletch10 on Twitter. My plea is this: if he won't stop picking you, please pretend to be injured. PLEASE. I can't take any more— Steve (@teatotally) September 5, 2015
So Steven Fletcher was proudly sporting his beard (early) for #worldbeardday, shame it slowed down his shooting boots...— 'JG' aka El Grubster (@NottingHillBly) September 5, 2015
Steven Fletcher has played 207 mins of football scoring once this season out of five games [450 mins] yet is classed as first choice striker— Scotzine (@scotzine) September 4, 2015

Don't think Steven Fletcher's a bad player, but still struggling to see why Craig Levein took so much flak for not picking him— Anthony Brown (@anthonyabrown) September 4, 2015
What even is a Steven Fletcher...?— Dazernier™ (@Blue_Daz) September 4, 2015
Steven Fletcher getting 90 minutes is a joke on it's own for a start!— Michael Mann (@Mike_Mann91) September 4, 2015
Steven Fletcher is the worst forward since photosynthesis— scott (@EnglishIsALie) September 4, 2015
Steven Fletcher needs to sort himself out. He is way better than what he has been for the past 18 months.— that_Nelz_cray (@damn_Nelz) September 4, 2015
You have to wonder why all the fuss to get#stevenfletcher back in the fold for Scotland a striker who doesn't score— Ian McIntyre (@Jamjarim12) September 4, 2015
