Daniel Squizzato reported that Canada’s request to add Fraser Aird to their U20 team was declined by Rangers management.

 

The team begins the 2015 CONCACAF U20s Championship this week. It is a three-week tournament that includes twelve nations. The top four qualify for the 2015 U20 World Cup in New Zealand.

 

Squizzato states that “Canada did attempt to add Aird to their tournament roster but Rangers declined the request.”

 

Dundee’s Dylan Carreiro met a similar fate.

 

David Rowaan, of Walking the Red, confirmed that Aird had been invited to the camp leading up to the tournament but he was also not released for that. Rowaan believes that Aird would still be on the radar for the Canadian national team as they prepare for qualifications for the 2018 World Cup.

 

Rangers on-loan center back Luca Gasparotto is expected to play a critical role to Canada’s success as he will be called upon to anchor the Canadian defence.

Another weird decision,why the feck wouldn't they allow the kid to go and play for his country?:confused:

It's not as if he is irreplaceable,and wouldn't do the young guy any harm getting away for a while

From the mad house that is Ibrox.

 

they probably heard the guy's name and just put the phone down :D2

I wonder how the boy feels now. I'd imagine he'll be sick to death.

If I'm not mistaken, the lad is still eligible to play for Scotland, so the decision might not have been one made just by Rangers, but one made by Rangers on behalf of Aird himself.

 

He might have his eyes set on the senior Canadian national team or Scotland call-up, although I think looking for a Scotland call-up would be very misguided.
