CHARLIE MULGREW has revealed his desire to rejoin the Scotland squad in what would be a shock return.
The former Celtic player joined Dundee United this summer and has been on fine form ever since. After the infamous win against theRangers earlier this season, Charlie Mulgrew received praise from both fans and pundits.
His last cap came in a 4-0 defeat in the hands of Russia in the EURO Qualifiers in 2019. He was forgotten about ever since by Steve Clarke but his fine form should bring him back into the Scotland boss’ plans.
The 35-year-old spoke to SunSport about a possible return to the Scotland squad, revealing he isn’t just at Dundee United to retire;
“What would it say about me if I said I didn’t want to be considered anymore? That’s just not me.
“As long as I’m playing club football at a good level I’ll always be available for Scotland.
“It’s up to Steve Clarke to decide if he wants to select me, but I still have ambitions to play for my country.
“Scotland can tell me when they don’t need me. I’ll never tell Scotland that’s me done.”
“My last cap was two years ago in a 4-0 defeat to Russia and that obviously wasn’t a great night.
“But I get on great with Steve and loved working with him.
“He’s got a few options at the moment defensively and the lads have done brilliantly. Long may that continue because I’m a big Scotland fan, apart from anything else.
“But I can’t lie, I still have ambitions to play.
In the latest squad called up by Steve Clarke includes Jack Hendry, Grant Hanley, Scott McKenna and Liam Cooper as his central defensive options. Kieran Tierney can also play the central defensive role. It is a tough ask for Mulgrew to regain his place, especially given his age, but his attitude to represent his country is the perfect mentality, the key to international football.
