Daniel Squizzato reported that Canada’s request to add Fraser Aird to their U20 team was declined by Rangers management.  

The team begins the 2015 CONCACAF U20s Championship this week.  It is a three-week tournament that includes twelve nations.  The top four  qualify for the 2015 U20 World Cup in New Zealand.

Squizzato states that “Canada did attempt to add Aird to their tournament roster but Rangers declined the request.”

Dundee’s Dylan Carreiro met a similar fate.

David Rowaanof Walking the Redconfirmed that Aird had been invited to the camp leading up to the tournament but he was also not released for that.  Rowaan believes that Aird would still be on the radar for the Canadian national team as they prepare for qualifications for the 2018 World Cup.

Rangers on-loan center back Luca Gasparotto is expected to play a critical role to Canada’s success as he will be called upon to anchor the Canadian defence.
