However Gordon Strachan took the captain's armband off Wheater before the game with Nottingham Forest at the weekend.

Gordon Strachan: "David is a young player who needs to concentrate on developing his football.

"Gary O'Neill has a lot of football under his belt and he knows the game.

"I also like the idea of having a captain in midfield where he is in a better position to direct things around the pitch."
