  • Scott Bain: Bhoys are ready for Euro 2020 qualifiers

    Scott Bain: Bhoys are ready for Euro 2020 qualifiers

    By: Joe Donnelly on 21 Mar, 2019 09:01

  • FOUR Celtic players will start for Scotland in their opening Euro 2020 qualifier away to Kazakhstan today (Thursday). Callum McGregor will captain his country for the first time, with Scott Bain, James Forrest and Oliver Burke also in the starting XI.

    Ahead of travelling with the Scotland squad, Scott Bain spoke to the Celtic View about the prospect of becoming his country's No.1.

    “For myself, it’s just a case of this being another opportunity," he said. "At Celtic, what I’ve seen is that whenever you get an opportunity, you’ve got to take it. They come few and far between, so if I get the nod to play then I’ll be ready to grasp it.

    “I think it speaks to the performances the boys are putting in here at club level, to get so many of the boys getting called out for international duty.

    “If you look at the last few Scotland games especially, the real core of the Celtic boys in midfield and attacking with Jamesy, it stands the nation in good stead that these boys have got an understanding and the manager notices that.

    “I don’t ever let myself get too far ahead. I think the minute that you start to think of certain games before other ones have passed, you risk getting into trouble. For myself, I’ll take the international break, and I’ll focus on those games."
