Scotland are ready and able to "move on" without Kris Boyd.
Assistant coach Terry Butcher admits Boyd's decision to refuse to play for his country during George Burley's tenure as manager came as a "shock" - but he has no doubt Scotland can prosper without the Rangers striker.
"We have to move on without Kris Boyd and we certainly will do," Butcher told BBC Radio 5 Live. "We have enough players."
Scotland were held to a frustrating 0-0 World Cup qualifying draw at home to Norway on Saturday - after which Boyd quit, citing a lack of opportunity under Burley.
Butcher believes Boyd's future absence is the right move, though, if the 25-year-old is no longer truly committed to the cause.
"It is his decision - and as George said quite rightly, every national coach wants players who are 100% behind playing for their country," he said.
