SCOTT McGleish could be on his way out of Adams Park after his relationship with manager Peter Taylor broke down this week.

The star striker has been left out of the squad for Saturday's match at Accrington after threatening to put in a transfer request.

The 34-year-old veteran told reporters he wanted away after Tuesday’s match at Barnet when he was dropped to the bench – despite slotting the injury time penalty which earned Blues another 1-1 draw against Darlington on Saturday.

McGleish said he would be considering putting in a transfer request on Thursday, but contacted the Free Press today to say he had changed his mind.

He said: “I had been angry and frustrated straight after the game on Tuesday and I said some things in the heat of the moment.

“I said I was considering putting in a transfer request but after a couple of days at home I thought it wasn’t the right thing to do and I decided not to put one in.

“But now I have been left out it is something I will have to consider again because I feel I am being pushed out of the door.”

Wanderers boss Peter Taylor was furious to learn of McGleish’s comments and immediately pulled him out of the travelling party which heads north tomorrow.

Taylor said this afternoon: “He was left out because I thought he was going to hand in a transfer request. Anyone who doesn’t want to be at the football club, I won’t consider.”

The episode marks a deterioration in the relationship between the two.

McGleish reacted angrily to being substituted against Brentford last month, throwing his shirt down in front of the manager, and was subsequently fined.

McGleish was Wanderers’ top scorer last season with 26 of Wanderers’ 56 league goals and he has netted three this term.

At Barnet on Tuesday he was behind on-loan Welsh U21 ace Simon Church, Chris Zebroski, Blues’ £20,000 summer capture, and £10,000 deadline day recruit Matt Harrold, in the pecking order.
