Why Charlie Nicholas has upset Scotland fans


Former Scotland international Charlie Nicholas has upset a few of his countrymen.

The ex-Celtic and Arsenal forward is now working as a Sky Sports pundit.

He was asked to pick his combined England v Scotland team ahead of Friday’s match at Wembley.

Nicholas duly obliged by selecting his best XI. The only trouble was – there were no Scotsmen in the side.
