McClaren: Forget politics, England should consider Chelsea's Terry on form
While McClaren appreciates that there are political issues surrounding Terry, he believes any decision should come down to on-field concerns.
He told BBC Radio Five Live's Sportsweek programme: "You look at what's happened off the field, what's happened on the squad, internally what can happen, but also it's form as well.
"So if you look ahead to the future will John Terry in one, two, three, four years be involved in that?
"I think Roy Hodgson has a decision to make as to whether to go for the future or whether to win in the short term."
