Steve Clarke gets Jury verdict over 4 big Scotland calls and Celtic fans told they're living in dreamland

Has Steve Clarke made the right decision cutting Craig Gordon and John Souttar from his Euros squad?

MICHAEL GANNON: Souttar has been unlucky with injuries so couldn’t be risked. The Gordon call looks extremely harsh. Liam Kelly is the future and will benefit from going, but, for me, Gordon is still one of our best keepers – if not the best. Clarke knows best but I would take him to Germany.

ANDY NEWPORT: I’d have taken Gordon but in all honesty, picking the third choice keeper isn’t a major call. Barring disaster Angus Gunn will play every minute in Germany. Souttar would have no luck were it not for the bad stuff he’s continually clobbered with but given the injury issues we’ve already faced, Clarke can take no more risks.

FRASER WILSON: A goalkeeper had to go but if you asked me who I’d want between sticks if Angus Gunn got crocked then Gordon would have been the next choice. Seven centre halves was too many aswell and Souttar’s injury-hit end to the campaign has clearly taken its toll.

Can Tommy Conway and Lewis Morgan fill the holes left by Lyndon Dykes and Ben Doak?

MICHAEL: Not really, but they will fill the holes in the squad. Dykes is a huge loss as he would have played a major role. Doak could have been an exciting wild card to chuck in. But Conway and Morgan are in form and have just been handed golden tickets. We are well short in the front areas and they might end up unlikely heroes.

ANDY: Unlikely. Much like Liam Kelly, they are there in case an asteroid wipes out half the squad. Clarke will stick by the regulars who have served him so well.

FRASER: Conway is an exciting addition and certainly has that gallus streak required for the big occasion. But he’ll very much be third choice to lead the line and nobody can fill that battering ram ability of Dykes unfortunately. The Morgan addition was a surprise. Kilmarnock’s Danny Armstrong would have been my pick.

Should Hibs fans be excited by David Gray’s appointment and what should he be targeting next season?

MICHAEL: Gray has looked ready for the role and by all accounts he’s emerging as a top coach. He will need a lot of support though and Malky Mackay will have a huge part to play in giving the gaffer a platform. Hibs need to be top six no matter what, but Gray will need time and backing.

ANDY: They should be wary given the club’s recent record of appointing bosses. But given his status as a 2016 Hampden hero he’ll be given their full support as he sets about leading the club back to the top six. That has to be his priority for a club of Hibs’ size.

FRASER: It’s as obvious an appointment as Hibs have made since Jack Ross which should satisfy fans. They’ve tried the rookie with Shaun Maloney, the seasoned campaigner in Lee Johnson and the project boss in Nick Montgomery. None worked. Now they have someone who knows the club and the game up here. Euro spots has to be the aim.

Are Celtic fans living in dreamland over talk of an Odsonne Edouard and Kieran Tierney return?

MICHAEL: More than likely. Edouard is on mega money and will have options down south and abroad. You get the feeling Tierney will come back one day but likewise, he’s on fortunes and will have a queue of clubs on his trail across the continent. Celtic fans might need to wait a while longer before KT’s return.

ANDY: I’m surprised they’d want Edouard back given the way he performed before departing but Tierney is a no brainer if they can tempt him into a return. There will always be that emotional pull for a Bhoyhood supporter but ultimately it comes down to two things - cash and ambition. Given Celtic’s bank balance, they should be able to put together a tempting offer on both fronts.

FRASER: It would appear so. There’s no need to blow vast amounts of money on another striker in Edouard. And while Tierney would be an unbelievable addition the 27-year-old surely has another big move left in him.
