Norwich’s Snodgrass confident Scotland’s strike stars can replace Miller

Robert Snodgrass is supremely confident that Scotland’s current strikers are good enough to fill the void left by Kenny Miller.

Robert Snodgrass is supremely confident that Scotland’s current strikers are good enough to fill the void left by Kenny Miller.

The 33-year old Vancouver Whitecaps striker recently retired from international football after 69 caps, which included 18 goals, leaving what some critics suggest is a gaping hole in Gordon Strachan’s squad.

But Norwich City midfielder Snodgrass believes the likes of Blackburn Rovers ace Jordan Rhodes, Wolves’ Leigh Griffiths, Nottingham Forest’s Jamie Mackie, Leeds United’s Ross McCormack and Sunderland star Steven Fletcher are good enough to carry the attacking burden.

"I see these boys do it every time we meet up, their finishing is unbelievable. Jordan Rhodes, his record speaks for itself," Snodgrass told Sky Sports News ahead of Friday’s World Cup qualifier with Belgium.

"I've seen Leigh Griffiths do it since he was 16 and Steven Fletcher's record in the Premier League is unbelievable so we've got players in the side that can score goals.

"I've played with Ross McCormack and I think he's one of the best players I've played with. The manager will be saying 'can we get the service to these boys' to see their finishing ability?

"I don't think we will see all of them at the one stage but whoever gets their chance, there is no doubt these boys can finish."
