Rangers' Barry Ferguson and Allan McGregor have been told they will never play for Scotland again.

The Scottish FA made the announcement because of a weekend drinking session after defeat by Netherlands and V-signs made on the bench against Iceland.

The pair had initially been dropped to the bench by Scotland manager George Burley following the early-hours drinking session at the team hotel following the 3-0 World Cup qualifying reverse in Amsterdam.

SFA chief executive Gordon Smith on Thursday backed his manager's action and suggested that the matter was now closed.

Seems harsh to me. A sound punishment is necessary to make sure such a thing never happens again but to ban both players for life for one mistake?

I dont know much about Scottish football in general, so perhaps it isnt a first, but if it is then well, its harsh.
