Cardiff's Marshall happy to bide Scotland time

David Marshall suggests it is not too much of an issue to him if he continues to wait for regular international football.

The Cardiff City goalkeeper replaced the injured Allan McGregor with aplomb in Scotland's two most recent friendlies against the USA (0-0) and Norway (1-0) to take his caps tally to 10.

At 28, Marshall could be excused from wanting to rush for more international matches but he has indicated that remaining patient could be the way to go if he wants to remain part of the Scotland setup into the future.

"You just have to bide your time. I am still only 28 so hopefully there are still plenty more years to play," he told the Daily Record.

"You just have to stick with it. I have seen a lot of boys come and go in the squads. I just think if you are playing with your club and doing well you will get your chance at some point.

"The manager (Gordon Strachan) has been great with me since he came in. You just want to repay people who show you a bit of faith."
