Scotland need a”hero” to propel future generations as their hopes of qualifying for Euro 2020 hang by a thread, says senior striker Billy Dodds.
Even a 4-0 thrashing by Belgium on Sunday made it three defeats and you win from four matches accountable for manager Steve Clarke.
After their demolition by Belgium, former Scotland striker Kris Boyd warned Scottish soccer hadn’t hit rock bottom.
“We need a fanatic,” Dodds told Sky Sports News. “We have Andy Robertson. Gamers can inspire to go onto pitches.
“But we need to have a commodity on the pitch that is likely to attract success to find these youngsters interested. If you’re not winning nobody’s interested.”
Dodds considers Clarke does not have the luxury of time to receive the team functioning.
“We’re impatient in this country,” he explained. “We are aware that it’s an outcome business, I’ve been in the sport myself in case you don’t win games that you get the sofa it is as simple as that.
“Now I am not saying Steve Clarke’s [in danger], I believe he is the ideal guy to take the country forward.”
The Scotland striker demanded after Clarke’s side have managed in six group matches, Leigh Griffiths be remembered to the squad.
Dodds considers Scotland want a forward who can help build optimism and momentum at the build up to this Nations League playoffs next summer.
“Leigh Griffiths can get you something from nothing as he did against England together with both free kicks, thus we need caliber in there,” Dodds said.
“We don’t have enough good players in key places and we need competition for places up front.”
Scotland have conceded 13 goals up to now in the Euro 2020 group stages and Dodds believes defence is a cause for concern for both Clarke.
He said:”We have to get better defensively because we’ve leaked goals not only against Belgium and Russia, we have leaked goals to Kazakhstan and to Cyprus.”
