Scotland boss Alex McLeish says Manchester United midfielder Darren Fletcher has "an aura" about him.

Despite his injury setbacks, McLeish hailed the return of Fletcher as a major boost for the national team.

"It's fantastic news for us," he told Sky Sports. "We will have to wait and see whether we start him or not.

"He has a big chance of playing, particularly with the injuries that we have and the people who may need to be rested.

"He is a big player. He is a Manchester United player and Manchester United players exude an aura.

"To be fair, the squad already has that aura because of the results and performances that they have already so I take my hat off to them.

"They have been fantastic."
