Newcastle United legend Malcom Macdonald says Scotland star Ryan Fraser ‘has been a disaster’ for his former club despite his national team form.

Fraser has had a stop-start time of things since joining Newcastle United at the start of the 2020/21 season, making 22 appearances. But he has been a shining light for Steve Clarke and Scotland whenever he has been selected, scoring four times under the national team boss as the nation heads to Euro 2020.

MacDonald has accused the Newcastle United winger of using the Premier League club to get fit for Scotland duty (Daily Record): “Fraser has been a disaster because of attitude rather than ability. He has used Newcastle United to get fit for the Euros.

“He never played for United in the last 11 weeks going from an international for Scotland in March to a friendly against Holland this week when he miraculously played for half an hour. His last game for United was at Brighton on March 20.

 

“He played and scored for Scotland against Israel on March 28 and the Faroes on March 31 and never laced on boots again because of injury until June 2 in Portugal (against Netherlands).”
