Charlie Adam Questions Scott Brown’s Scotland U-Turn

Charlie Adam Questions Scott Brown’s Scotland U-Turn

Charlie Adam believes Scott Brown’s Scotland return is unfair on the other players in Gordon Strachan‘s national squad.

The Celtic captain is back in contention for his country just months after announcing his retirement to focus on playing for his club.

That spell away has led to a vast improvement in his form with the Hoops, but Scotland have struggled without him – taking just four points from the opening three games of their World Cup qualifying campaign.

Brown’s form for Celtic has now led him to go back on his decision to retire and he’s been included for the crunch clash with England at Wembley on Friday night.

But it’s unclear whether he’s back for good or just returning for one important game.

Not right

Adam appeared on BBC 5 Live last night and criticised Strachan’s selection choices as a whole after he missed out on the current squad, but he’s now turned on Brown and insisted that his return is unfair on the other players.

Per talkSPORT’s Alan Brazil, Adam said:

During Adam’s 5 Live rant, he recognised Scotland aren’t blessed with a big pool of talent so need all of their best players available.

So to see him question the Brown return – when the Celtic captain is arguably in the form of his life – is contradictory.

Regardless, Adam isn’t involved in this week’s game at Wembley and will have to watch on as his compatriots aim for a big victory to breathe life into their qualifying campaign.
