Wright expecting St Johnstone’s May to push for Scotland squad

St Johnstone boss Tommy Wright believes Stevie May is good enough to play for Scotland.

St Johnstone boss Tommy Wright believes Stevie May is good enough to play for Scotland.

The 20-year old striker scored his fifth league goal of the season as the Saints beat Motherwell 2-0 on Sunday and Wright is of the belief that his leading scorer would have impressed Scots boss Gordon Strachan with another positive display.

“Stevie plays with energy and mobility and a tempo about his game,” Wright said.

“He is a real livewire and he plays like that every week. I think Gordon Strachan was here and Stevie put in another good performance.”

He added: “I’m just pleased that he is improving as a player. He got another goal inside the six-yard box today after being renowned for his goals from distance.

“We are just concentrating on getting him to continue to improve at his link-up play, which he is doing, to get into the box more and get more goals in the box. If he continues to do that, he will go to the very top of the game.”
