Liverpool legend Kenny Dalglish believes Stoke City midfielder Charlie Adam can be the main man for Gordon Strachan's Scotland.

Liverpool legend Kenny Dalglish believes Stoke City midfielder Charlie Adam can be the main man for Gordon Strachan's Scotland.

Dalglish, who shelled out about £9m to sign Adam from Blackpool when he was Liverpool manager, has been well-impressed by the 28-year-old’s recent form.

Dalglish told the Sunday Mail: “It should be helpful to Gordon and Scotland if the Scottish boys are playing well. And certainly in the last few weeks, even against Liverpool a few weeks further back, Charlie has been.

“He scored a great goal, he rattled one in against Man United and got one chalked off by the dubious goals panel. He has also been involved in making a couple of goals. It is good to see Charlie back playing well.

“Is he an enigma? Yes, but if somebody has got abilities and a contribution to make you try your best to fit them in.”
