Holt adamant Livingston players can win Scotland recognition15th March 2019
Gary Holt insists Craig Halkett and Liam Kelly’s Scotland prospects are not being held back because they play for Livingston.
The on-form Livi pair had been tipped for call-ups to Alex McLeish’s squad ahead of this month’s showdowns with Kazakhstan and San Marino.
However, there was disappointment for centre-back Halkett and Lions number one Kelly as both were overlooked for the Scots’ opening Euro 2020 qualifiers.
But their club boss Holt rejected suggestions the reason for their omission was because they do not play for one of Scotland’s leading sides – telling the pair they need look no further than himself to see that the gulf to the international scene can be bridged even while playing for a provisional outfit.
