T&T keen on Kilmarnock teenager, Rory McKenzie
By Graeme Bailey (Sky Sports)


Highly-rated Kilmarnock striker Rory McKenzie is considering switching international allegiance to Trinidad & Tobago, Sky Sports can confirm.

The 18-year-old, who has come through the youth ranks at Rugby Park, is now a firm fixture in the first-team squad having made his debut last year.

McKenzie is a Scotland youth international, having been capped by the Scottish Under-19 side.

But now it has emerged that Trinidad and Tobago are making an audacious bid to claim his services.

McKenzie qualifies for the Caribbean nation through his grandmother, and his agent confirmed the Soca Warriors are interested.

Interest

"There is an interest from Trinidad and Tobago," his agent Gordon Reid confirmed to Sky Sports.

"But we must stress Rory has not accepted or even taken the matter further.

"It is flattering, of course, but at the moment he is concentrating on his Kilmarnock future.

"That is not to say he will not look at it in the future, but he is happy with the situation at the moment."

They don't; clearly his agent hasn't done his research. In T&T at present and for as long as I know it has only been residency and parents born in T&T that can get you citizenship. As Tallman say, marketing ploy, at least I hope so cause otherwise is jus plain stupidity.

No, grand kids can get T&T citizenship now, at least so I was told by Anton... there is a loop hole..

If it can work for the so-called 4 nations, then it should be extended to TT and the rest of the Caribbbean.

I think the agent just trying to get this kid capped by the senior side... no way anybody with other options would voluntarily come and submit themselves to this inner circle of hell called TnT football... and if he did I would question whether he had his head on straight.

I hope this is not an act of desperation by the TTFF.

I think there are other players that can take this guys spot.

Another "Great White Hope". This looks real desperate by TTFF. If this youth is good enough to make the TT team, I am sure he will get a call up by Scotland sometime. TT is currently ranked higher than Scotland (Fifa ranking is the only benchmark I could think of..). This is a waste a time. Pure begging for family taking place nowadays. 

Question. Suppose if his grandparent's children got TT citizenship/passport. Will that make him eligible. I think it might.

Was the same situation with Dale Bennett of Watford who was interested in playing for T&T, only connection was grandparents though.

For some reason I think if their parents get citizenship/passport then these guys will be eligible.
