    I guess selling out your country is the next step up after selling out 'your club'.

    I once drunk a glass of scotch, so I qualify for Scotland as well.

    I remember him saying a long time ago that he feels equally Scottish and English, as his grandparents are Scottish.

    Well done to him, really. It's a national team, and he's cracked in to it.

    Will be good to see how he matches up against other international players over the coming months.

    Talk to me, Goose.

    I that why he tried to get a call-up for Trinidad a while back?

    He won't get a game for Jockland, unless they have a few injuries.

    Is this the same Scotland who gave Gareth Williams a few games? And who had Gregor Robertson in their under 21 squad?

    True, he claimed he had some link to Trinidad via his grandfather. Similar to Chris Birchall of Coventry. Unlike Birchall, he got laughed at!

    Can't believe it actually. He's never played for Scotland at any level in the past then gets called up.

    seems odd to me......

    why has this only just happened?

    Makes you laugh really there is no way* he is good enough for scotland.

    No matter how well people say he played against Doncaster he is not good enough for scotland.

    My grandparents are scottish and believe me I feel very much English.....

    Unless you're born in Scotland you shouldn't play for them, they only have themselves to blame for the state of the football there.

    For a nation with the footballing pedigree they have, they COULD and probably should be a lot better than they are.

    A shocking lack of investment in grass roots football there and a totally irrelevant league has led to them being whipping boys.

    Scotland's population - 5,116,900 (2006 est.)

    Croatia's Population - 4,493,312 (2007 est.)

    they have no excuse for being as s**t as they are.

    I was born in Aberdeen, but as I only lived there for 4 weeks I feel very english. I would play for Scotland if called up though, but Fabio has told me I'll be in the next squad if I keep up my form at the start of the season...

    Fair enough.

    he wasn't born there and has never lived there as far as I know.

    Really hard to believe they have no better options on the left than Kris Commons.

    The last decent Scottish left-winger was John Smith.

    Hoping to turn heads in Scotland

    ...

    Obviously I'm happy with my form and I'm working really hard to maintain it. I know what I can do and I want to show it week after week. Not a lot of people know that I actually qualify to play for Scotland and it would be fantastic if my form brought me to the notice of the national manager Alex McLeish.

    ...


    Quite ironic that his form for Forest in League 1 is what's probably got him into the Scotland squad.

    ah well.

    Derby are going down so he'll need to move again to stay in the squad for next year.

    Another opportunity for him to pick up injuries. Good.

    He doesn't need another opportunity - just day to day living seemed to do it for him when he played for Forest.

    Is this true, or just a wind up?
