Yea I don't think he should be necessarily thrown right into the starting 11, although I wouldn't be against it, but completely omitting him from the squad is ridiculous.

I really don't see why we aren't looking at what Southgate is doing at England and even what Giggs is doing with Wales and chucking promising young players in early doors, what have we got to lose at this point?

Wee insecure nation that can't handle a potential superstar. Got to knock him down a few pegs and batter the ego out of him.

Our tactic of playing senior pros from the championship has failed year after year, I'd be well up for getting some hungry younger players in to freshen things up. Even if he hasn't got to where people expected, look at that Martin Odegaard. He's been around the national team since he was about 16, i think we need to get out our heads that our national team is some huge step up because players like Gilmour will be playing at a higher level than the majority of the current team and the pressure/expectations that come from being at a club at that level. We need to start looking to smaller successful nations like belgium, and it seems like when they have a player who is showing to be class they'll play them regardless of age.

If he is trusted to play in the premier league for a top team like Chelsea why is he not trusted to line up for Scotland with a bunch of old firm players against Israel? He seems like the type of player that if it clicks for him right away he could be huge in getting us through, if he doesn't he's still a dece option to have in the squad over others. Just bizarre to leave him out completely.

Going from playing for Chelsea's first team to lining up alongside some guy who plays for Alloa Heh

(Nothing against the Alloa boy, good to see lower league players getting recognition)

To be fair we have a relegation run in and with White as our alternative for LB I’m more than happy for him to be excluded this time

Been to a couple Reims games when I was over there, pretty cool stadium. Fun fact, they were the losing team in the first ever European Cup final Tony Hmm
