Celtic flop Albian Ajeti was dropped from Switzerland because of his parkhead fights.
National team boss Murat Yakin admired that the outcast was dumped with the Hoops because of his “situation”.
The former West Ham striker seems out of the picture at Parkhead under manager Ange Postecoglou Record sport It was announced on Friday that the club would attempt to extradite him in January.
Ajeti last started a game in September and has had to be content with fleeting bets from the bench since then.
He was called back together with Rangers striker Cedric Itten, who is on loan to Bundesliga fighter Greuther Fürth, for last month’s qualification for the Swiss.
But both were dropped for their all-important World Cup double-headed ball with Italy and Lithuania.
Yakin said: “From my point of view, I look at each player’s individual performance and situation before I decide to name my squad.
“That’s why I decided in this case not to include Albian Ajeti and Cedric Itten.
“My choices for these games are Noah Okafor from Red Bull Salzburg and Andi Zeqiri from Augsburg instead.”
Ajeti was an unused substitute in Switzerland’s victories against Northern Ireland and Lithuania last month, while Itten was substituted on in both games.
