Let’s be honest here, we can’t blame the SFA for everything.
A huge proportion of the blame lies with the clubs. We hold our own at u16-u18 but it goes to shit by 21’s. It’s not the SFA that’s coaching these players it’s the clubs.
Rangers & Celtic should be embarrassed, probably more so Rangers given their previous financial woes by the lack of homegrown talent currently in their first team.
The path from promising youth to first team in Scotland is blocked by foreign journeymen and league 1/2 rejects.
Players at 17/18 need to be involved with the first team to aid their development but how often do we see that?
We need to introduce a way to stop this happening. The old foreigner rule was frustrating but when you look at the demise of the national team and club football in Scotland since it’s been gone their is def an argument for something to be brought in.
