A number of Sheffield Wednesday fans have taken to Twitter to give their thoughts on the latest Scotland squad selection, which features one Owls player but overlooked two Hillsborough teammates.
Liam Palmer has been picked by Steve Clarke for the home nation's upcoming international games against Cyprus and Kazakhstan, but Barry Bannan and Steven Fletcher were not named in the squad.
Fletcher has been impressive for the Owls this season, with five goals and one assist so far in 2019-20, although he hasn't scored for a number of games, while the Wednesday stand-in captain has been crucial in bossing the midfield for Garry Monk and co this term.
Here is what some Wednesday fans have been saying on social media upon finding out which of their players made the Scotland cut and which didn't:
Fine by me, 2 of our must important players will get a decent rest during the international break and come back the other side fresh and ready to go!!— Duchess (@PistolPete1867) 5 November 2019
Why would fletcher play how many goals has he scored in last 6 and bb was injured last week— Tony Hinds (@tonyblueowl) 5 November 2019
Fletch is getting on now. He does a good job at #swfc leading the line on his own but he does need more support in the danger zone.— Inskins (@Enigma1867) 5 November 2019
At the moment I’d rather Bannan & Fletch weren’t in the Scotland squad to keep them fit for us and no risk of picking up needless injuries! #swfc— Craig Wilson (@cdwillow91) 5 November 2019
Wonder where these 2 are ... pic.twitter.com/LIhUiRWUNX— Michael Hackney (@hackabusi) 5 November 2019
I’d rather they didn’t so fine by me. Surely there’s a better Scottish full back than Liam Palmer about ?— Callum Harrison (@CJHarrisonn) 5 November 2019

Why still no Bannan?— Chris Bradshaw (@bradders501) 5 November 2019
How has Naismith got a call up & Fletcher hasn’t ♂️.— Andrew Scholey (@Scoz1985) 5 November 2019
Scotland travel to Cyprus on Saturday 16 November to lock horns with them at the GPS Stadium, 2pm kickoff, before returning to Glasgow on Tuesday 19 November for the clash with Kazakhstan at Hampden Park, 7.45pm kickoff.
Qualification via Group I is now out of reach for Scotland, who will contest the playoffs next March for a place at Euro 2020.
