Stark decision after shock loss; FOOTBALL SHORTS SCOTLAND U21S.

SCOTLAND Under-21 boss Billy Stark told devastated duo Sam Stanton and Danny Handling to stay at home after their relegation disaster with Hibernian.

The Easter Road duo were due to meet up with the rest of Stark's group ahead of tomorrow's UEFA European Under-21 Championship qualifier with Holland. But they will miss the game at St Mirren Park after the Dark Blues boss decided the stunned 20-year-olds would put the squad's feel-good factor at risk.

He said: "The lads are in a state of shock. Some fans might think that players don't care what happens but they were distraught when I spoke to them last night.

"The squad needs positivity around it so I made the decision with lads' full backing that they should stay at home."
