Burnley defender Alexander won't give up international career

Burnley's 37 year-old defender Graham Alexander insists he can handle a full Premiership season and international football with Scotland.

"I'll never pull myself out of the international side," he said.

"Managers might have different opinions, but it's been a privilege to play for Scotland for seven years. I love it, and From back page I'd love to carry on.

"I've wanted to play every game I've been involved in, and I've managed to get five appearances this year. Hopefully I'll get more next season.

"But first and foremost I've got to play for Burnley for that to happen, and play well, and I'll be concentrating on that all the time."
