With Scotland fans still licking their wounds from the abject performance against Kazakhstan we’ve taken a look at the Celtic players on international duty and how they have been fairing for their countries so far.

Timothy Weah

Celtic’s loan star has been included in the squad for the USA’s Under-23 friendly fixtures against Egypt and The Netherlands which are both being played in Spain.
