Everton’s David Weir has informed the Scottish Football Association that he does not to be considered for selection for Scotland’s forthcoming Euro 2004 qualifier with Iceland.
The 32-year-old defender is believed to have been unhappy at being singled out for criticism by Vogts following the embarrassing draw against the Faroe Islands last month.
Vots was was quoted as saying: “Dailly and Weir disappointed me. They were to blame for the goals we conceded, not the youngsters.”
An SFA spokesman revealed that Weir had been in contact with the association.
At the time, Weir’s club boss at Everton, David Moyes, was also upset by Vogts’ comments and wrote to the SFA to voice his objections.
“I can confirm that we did receive a letter from David saying that he didn’t want to be included in Scotland squads in the near future,” said an SFA spokesman.
“To the best of my knowledge, we don’t have a reason why he doesn’t want to play.”
