The 26-year-old has been named in previous Scotland squads by Gordon Strachan but was omitted for the trip to Wembley, a decision which surprised McCoist.

He said: "Lee has done really well so far this season and I'm a little bit disappointed he's not in the squad. I'm sure he'll be a little bit disappointed too.

"Gordon has picked his squad though and we have to respect that.

"I'd be very hopeful that if Lee keeps performing the way he is, it won't be long before he's back in there. That's what he has got to aim for.

"Lee's attitude, as everyone can see, is absolutely first class and it's how he reacts to the disappointment of being left out that's important."

ood grief. Someone guessed that the form English player at the moment might be in his national side with some other players? And that's espionage? Now if they discovered that Emile Heskey was going to be in the starting line up.... at right back.... THAT would be espionage. Give it a rest Roy.
