Scotland Should Go Ginger In Georgia

Scotland Should Go Ginger In Georgia

Ginger-haired Dundee United captain Barry Robson could play some part in Scotland`s Euro Qualifier against Georgia this Wednesday.

Scotland are struggling with injuries and suspensions ahead of the crucial match - with Garry O'Connor and Lee McCulloch suspended after being booked during the 2-1 win over Ukraine at the weekend.

Meanwhile Scott Brown(hamstring), Alan Hutton(calf), Paul Hartley and Gary Caldwell are all available because of injuries.

Even with the news that Darren Fletcher and Graeme Murty have been called-up for Wednesday night, there is still a good chance that 28-year-old Robson could
Make an appearance off the bench.

United manager Craig Levein believes that the influential midfielder has the talent to lead Scotland to victory over Georgia, if only Alex McLeish gives him a chance.

"Barry has the ability and I know Alex McLeish was impressed with the work he was doing in training last week, but I think he will go with Ferguson, Pearson and Fletcher on Wednesday," admitted Levein to Arabzone.

"It`s one of these games where experience is vital and although Barry has plenty of it at club level, you are not talking someone with double figures in international caps and my feeling is that means he`ll be on the bench again."

"If he is I`ll be keeping my fingers crossed for him that he does get on and there has to be a good chance he will."
