Leeds United boss Neil Warnock has criticised the Scottish FA after his team captain Robert Snodgrass was forced to return home in the early hours of the morning following the countries international friendly in Slovenia.
Warnock also called their decision to not stay overnight a disgrace and he is looking forward to the day friendly internationals are banned.
Speaking on Yorkshire Radio, Warnock said, “This week has been a disgrace with the international break. I am told we have a lad (Snodgrass) coming back from Scotland from Slovenia at 4am.
“Surely, an international team can stop overnight and fly back the next day so you don`t lose your sleep pattern. I think it is ridiculous.
“What can you say about friendly internationals? I am sure they will be at last banned very shortly, which is what they should be.”
Leeds had both Snodgrass and Darren O`Dea on international duty in midweek.
Snodgrass earned his fifth international cap for Scotland in Slovenia when he replaced Craig Mackail-Smith for the final thirty minutes of the game.
O`Dea played the full 90 minutes for Republic of Ireland in their 1-1 draw with the Czech Republic in Dublin. The on loan Leeds defender came close to scoring for Ireland but failed to get enough power into his header when in a good position.
