Fletcher handed Scotland boost

14 November 2018

Scotland legend Sir Kenny Dalglish has urged manager Alex McLeish to hand Steven Fletcher his first cap in 13 months this Saturday evening.

The Scots visit Albania in the Nations League and Owls striker Fletcher is in the frame to add to his 31 international caps.

Dalglish said: “I’m delighted to see Steven Fletcher back in the fold. He is an experienced campaigner and knows his way to goal.

“He has clearly shown enthusiasm and a willingness to be part of Alex’s plans, and that is heartening.

"I would hand him the number 9 jersey for the game against Albania on Saturday night.”

Fletcher has impressed for Wednesday this season, forcing his way back into the Scotland set-up as a result.

McLeish’s men end their Nations League group at Hampden Park next Tuesday, 20 November.
