These Scotland fans are unhappy after McBurnie is named in Blades squad

Many Scotland fans are unhappy Oli McBurnie is featuring for Sheffield United just two days after withdrawing from the squad.

Although the Scottish FA didn’t give a reason for McBurnie’s withdrawal, it has since been reported the striker has an injury.

Yet despite that, the 24-year-old has been named among the Blades substitutions for tonight’s pre-season friendly with Derby County.

Which hasn’t pleased some among the Tartan Army.

This isn’t the first time the Leeds-born forward has upset some of his national team’s support. In September, McBurnie apologised to his international teammates after a video published online by the Blades’ social media team.

It showed fellow Scot, John Fleck, asking the attacker if he was going away on international duty. McBurnie responded: “I hope not”.

Scotland manager, Steve Clarke, said he had drawn a line under the situation, while Chris Wilder thought it was “blown out of proportion”.

The club’s social media team later apologised to McBurnie, who accepted it but said “the damage was already done”.

The attacker, who is yet to score for his country in nine appearances, now seems to be even less popular with Scottish fans.
