Newcastle quartet Anthony Gordon, Harvey Barnes, Elliot Anderson and Tino Livramento, plus Leeds’ Archie Gray, have all been mentioned as possibles for months.

Although Gordon has now been called up by England while Anderson pulled out.

But Scotland No 2 John Carver insists there is little chance of any of them wearing a Dark Blue jersey at this year’s finals.

On the suggestion of the Euros being used as a negotiating ploy, Carver replied bluntly: “I would be very surprised because loyalty is massive.

“It is important to give these guys who have been loyal, and who have done really well for this national team, an opportunity to be in that squad of 23.

“I think we are almost settled on what we are going to take away.

“I’d be very surprised if somebody comes out from nowhere. Unless we find somebody who’s like, ‘Wow’ — an outstanding player.

“I am not going to go down this street of Anderson and Gordon and all this lot because I’ve had enough of that. I am sick of talking about that.

“If somebody comes from nowhere I would be very surprised.

“But we are looking at all the options for the future — because we have to take it further again after the Euros.”
