Nothing better than scoring for Scotland against England - McGhee

Scotland assistant manager Mark McGhee admits scoring against England was one of the best moments of his career.

The former Newcastle United, Celtic, Aberdeen and Hamburg striker won the European Cup with the Dons, among other titles, but insists playing against England was always such a massive occasion for him.

"I still measure the highlight of my career as being the game I played against England," he told a news conference ahead of Wednesday's Wembley friendly between the two nations.

"(Despite) All the leagues and cups and European Cup that I won the highlight of my career was the goal I scored against England."

He added: "The fact they are getting an opportunity to play at Wembley, which not many do, playing against England at Wembley it's a fantastic stage to play on.

"Many friendlies don't have any edge but I think that this one does."
