    Youíd get rid of 2 players whose form this season saw them called up to the Scotland squad?
    I wouldnít be getting rid of them but they need to start showing the form that saw them get called up to the Scotland squad.

    The defence that started the season brilliantly has been absolutely all over the shop for the past couple of months. Players like Hanlon and Porteous are not performing at the level they were.

    You cant be serious!!
    I really donít understand why I have to justify that?

    I didnít call him up to the Scotland squad. Steve Clarke did.

    I didnít say who he rated higher, nor would I, cos itís plain to see who he rates higher.

    Clarke rates Hanlon, this season he called him up to the national team. That was my point.
    He's never managed Hanlon so probably wanted to get a closer look at him to see if he could cut it at international level.

    The fact that he played 20 minutes and then never played a second the following game and Considine ahead of him maybe suggests he wasn't all that impressed.

    We will find out if he rates him or not when the Euro squad is announced. My hunch is he won't be in it.

    Totally agree.

    What Iím saying is theyíre good players playing poorly, I donít think we should be releasing them based on a very recent form.

    Hanlon has this infuriating habit of being a solid defender and playing very well for 89 of 90 minutes, only to make a crucial mistake which leads to a game-costing goal.

    He's been a great servant of the club but it's time he was no longer an automatic first pick.

    Iíd not be surprised if he didnít make the squad either. I doubt he will.

    If he did though, and played every game at the euros, Iíd also not be surprised if folk on here still said he was ***** and should be released.

    What a needless post.

    How many international minutes have Lewy Hanlon and Paul McGinn played between them?
    More than Jason Kerr, but folk think heíd sort us out at the back.

    More than SDG, who was brilliant a couple of years ago, more than Darren McGregor, who was also brilliant.

    Football teams are cyclical. It's time to move on from Lewy Hanlon McGregor and Gray. That money should be free'd up to build a defense that will be the future. Its time to move on from them!

    We move on from them when itís time, we can already see that happening.

    Itís not time for Hanlon yet.

    Can't believe Stevenson, Gray & McGregor are even being mentioned today.
    We could've still came back at 2-0 down, but there was nothing or noone on the pitch who wanted it. It was a painful performance, and those on the pitch were the culprits- not anyone on the bench.
