Video: Callum Paterson Scores Again For Cardiff.. New Scotland Striker?

Callum Paterson has scored for Cardiff again today – so is he a genuine contender to start as Scotland striker?

The former Hearts man has been outstanding for the Welsh side since moving there last year.

He helped them get promotion to the English Premier League in his first full season and looks like he’s going to be important as they aim to stay in the league at the first time of asking.

Paterson has been used in a number of positions by Neil Warnock, but has most recently led the line for Cardiff.

And that’s been a brilliant decision from the City manager as Paterson now has three goals in four games.

His latest came this afternoon in their home Premier League clash with Brighton.

Paterson is usually so good in the air and put that to use to hit the net:

Paterson now has to be considered as a genuine contender for a place up front for Scotland when Alex McLeish’s men face Albania and Israel next week. Surely?
