Back to the international fixtures – Scott Brown, and the four other players walking a suspension tightrope, will not be rested against Malta tonight. And Belgium have become the first country in Europe to qualify for Russia next summer. Oh to be in that comfortable position for a change… It is match day eight in the World Cup qualifying campaign but the talk is not all about Scotland’s game against Malta tonight. Rangers are said to be lining up a friendly with Benfica in Hamilton… no, not just off the Raith Interchange but across the pond in Canada. Brendan Rodgers has admitted Celtic would have broken the bank for Patrick Roberts if Manchester City had let them but they were not for selling the attacker. And Nadir Ciftci has Ciftci-ed it at Plymouth, much to the internet’s entertainment.
