George Burley all but vetos Iran v Scotland match

Iran v Scotland isn’t looking likely. Scotland coach, George Burley has indicated his doubts about the proposed Scotland friendly in Tehran. As for suggestions of a England v Scotland tie, Old Firm commitments are to blame for this lost opportunity.

Both Rangers and Celtic are planning tours in the late end of May. With a significant proportion of the Scotland squad made up of Celtic and Rangers players that would, in effect, prevent half the team from being able to attend any match late in May.

Burley however remains intent on another friendly tie and would ” like to get something sorted for May”, presumably at Hampden and earlier in the month.

One consolation, whatever match is organised, at least we’ll be able to enjoy a wee bevvy after the game. Celebrations in Tehran would have been a bit non-alcoholic.
