Barcelona boss Joan Laporta says he is "outraged" that France has chosen to keep Thierry Henry in their squad for a Euro 2008 qualifier against Scotland on Wednesday even though the striker is suspended.

"He has a yellow card and he can't play but the coach wants him to stay," Spanish sports daily Marca quoted Laporta as saying on its Internet site on Tuesday.

"So we have done what we could so that the player returns. I am outraged by this unjust and inappropriate action," he said.

Laporta added that it was a "disgrace" that clubs were required to let their international players take part in national team matches without receiving any compensation in return.

Henry's continued presence with the French national team means he will miss the final of the Copa Catalunya against Gimnastic Tarragona on Tuesday.

The 30-year-old picked up the yellow card during France's goalless draw away to Italy on Saturday for kicking Italy captain Fabio Cannavaro.
