Neil McCann Says Steven Caulker is Open to Becoming a Scotland International

Neil McCann says Steven Caulker is open to becoming a Scotland international.

The Dundee manager will be delighted to have left Celtic Park with a point after his side earned a 0-0 draw against Brendan Rodgers’ men.

He had to deal with some off-field headlines before the game, with reports today saying Dundee rejected a seven-figure bid from Norway for Caulker.

The English defender only signed for the Dees in February and has made seven appearances since – but Dundee aren’t prepared to let him go so soon.

And now McCann has tipped Caulker to continue performing and switch allegiance from England to Scotland and earn a place in Alex McLeish’s squad – due to his Scottish grandmother.

Speaking after tonight’s game, McCann, per bbc.co.uk, said: “I would love him to pull on the dark blue for Scotland.

“I would like to think he’s open to that.”

That could perk the interest of McLeish given Scotland aren’t exactly blessed at centre back right now.

Gordon Strachan struggled with centre halves during his tenure in charge and, despite Scott McKenna and Jack Hendry’s emergence in recent internationals, McLeish is likely to have the same issue.

We’ll be interested to see if Caulker could become a Scotland cap during the next national team get together in the summer.
