Rangers striker Kenny Miller suggests the reason why none of his teammates were selected for Scotland squad

The likes of Lee Wallace and Jason Holt were left out by Gordon Strachan.

Kenny Miller believes that Rangers playing in the Scottish Championship was the reason that none of his teammates were picked by Gordon Strachan for Scotland's upcoming friendlies, the Daily Record reports.

The likes of Lee Wallace, Jason Holt, Andy Halliday and Barrie McKay all failed to receive a call-up for either of the squads that Strachan has named for the games against the Czech Republic and Denmark later this month. 

And while Hibernian's John McGinn made it into one of the squads, Miller suggested that playing outside the top flight seems to be the only reason that the former Celtic boss could have decided to overlook the quartet as their form was deserving of a chance.

"I know John McGinn has made it playing at this level but potentially this level is going against us. But I am sure these lads will be on the radar as you can’t keep performing the way they have and not be," he told the Record.

"You can see the way Lee is playing. Jason has been outstanding, Andy is another one. Barrie is in the set-up and if he can stand out with the 21s it's the natural progression."

The four players that Miller mentioned have been instrumental in guiding Mark Warburton's side back towards the Scottish Premiership this season. They have helped form a spine that has allowed the Light Blues to move comfortably clear at the top of the second tier.

And with Halliday, Holt and McKay all under the age of 25, it seems that if they do secure promotion, they will have more than enough time to convince Strachan that they do deserve to be considered as players that can help the country qualify for major tournaments in the future.
