Birmingham to send Shroot on-loan to Scotland

Scottish clubs are interested in Birmingham City winger Robin Shroot.

Shroot does appear to still be in Alex McLeish's thoughts with the boss hoping to send him out for a temporary spell north of the border.

"Robin will feel he needs more league experience. He was at Burton for a wee while but it's been difficult to get him out anywhere else," McLeish told the Birmingham Mail. "He was injured the last few weeks of the season and I think it could go right to the wire whether he'd be ready for pre-season again.

"I've thought about Robin going out for league experience next year and possibly to Scotland. I've suggested that as a way forward for him.

"I think he'd do well in Scotland and I think it would be good for him to get some consistency from games.

"Why Scotland? Well, there is a problem with finances up there and it might be easier to loan to some of the Scottish teams. Robin is a decent player and it wouldn't cost them too much.

"The Premier League is not bad, a lot of bigger names have gone up there and failed, but he's capable of doing well."
