Some Scotland supporters are performing U-turns over Sheffield Wednesday’s Liam Palmer.

Palmer won his fifth senior cap as Scotland beat Kazakhstan 3-1 on Tuesday.

The result saw Steve Clarke’s side progress to the play-off round of Euro 2020 qualification.

And it also brought Palmer face-to-face again with the opponents against whom he endured a nightmare debut earlier this year.

The 28-year-old right-back was slated by large numbers of Scotland fans following that 3-0 defeat.

But after providing the cross from which Steven Naismith scored to give Scotland the lead in the reverse fixture – as well as a handful of others which his teammates failed to convert – Palmer appears to be changing opinions.

Palmer will now return to Sheffield Wednesday ahead of the Owls’ trip to West Bromwich Albion on Saturday.

The Worksop-born player has established himself as a regular again at Hillsborough this past year, appearing at both left- and right-back throughout that period.

He is now Wednesday’s sole Scotland representative, with David Bates, Barry Bannan, Steven Fletcher and Jordan Rhodes all overlooked by Clarke.
