There are rumours circulating this evening that Scotland assistant manager James McFadden was involved in a heated bust-up with midfielder Callum McGregor following tonight’s shocking defeat to Kazakhstan.
The Scots were heavy favourites going into their opening Euro 2020 qualifying match in Astana, with McGregor wearing the captain’s armband for the first-ever time at international level, but it wasn’t long before they were firmly put in their place by the hosts, who romped to a 3-0 win.
Afterwards, we told you how manager Alex McLeish admitted the game had been ‘horrible’ but the recriminations seem to have rumbled on into the dressing room, with various reports on social media of McFadden clashing with McGregor after the full-time whistle.
It seems the incident was spotted by BBC Scotland commentator Liam McLeod, and the Daily Record reports that McGregor ‘pushed’ McFadden away as he made his way off the pitch, whilst the Sun report the pair had been involved in a ‘scuffle’.
News of the set-to only hammers home the humiliation for Scotland fans, some of whom will be travelling to San Marino for the next match on Sunday evening.
What do you make of the defeat to Kazakhstan?
