Wigan Athletic signing Fraser Fyvie is being tipped to be a Scottish great.

Aberdeen boss Craig Brown – who has managed Scotland in the past – believes Fyvie has all the tools to become the best player he’s ever bossed.

“I’ve worked with some of the best Scottish midfielders over the years, including John Collins, Paul Lambert and Barry Ferguson,” Brown told the Wigan Observer.

“I was also the assistant manager of Scotland when Paul McStay made his big breakthrough.

“They were all midfielders of exceptional quality, but Fraser has the potential to become the best of the lot.

“He’s not there yet, but he has that wee bit of extra dig about him – the sort of extra quality that helped Paul Scholes become one of the best midfielders in Europe.”
