McManus targeting Scotland recall following Motherwell move

Stephen McManus is determined to force his way back into the Scotland fold now he has signed with Motherwell.

The former Celtic and Middlesbrough defender has not represented the Tartan Army since October 2010 but is keen to force his way into Gordon Strachan's plans now he is back under his nose in the Scottish Premier League.

"I'm lucky enough I have got a decent relationship with Gordon Strachan but first and foremost you need to play well with your club," he told MFCTV.

"Obviously I still have aspirations to play for my country but you need to be playing well week in, week out and that's what I'll be trying to do.

"I have always said I'll never retire from international football.

"The only reason I will not be in squads is if the manager doesn't pick me, it will not be from my own doing."
