Burnley midfielder Arfield on Scotland radar - McGhee

Burnley midfielder Scott Arfield has been assured he's in Scotland plans.

Scotland No2 Mark McGhee insists they're following Arfield's impressive form this term.

"In the middle of the park we have Scott Brown, Charlie Mulgrew, James Morrison and James McArthur, a group in our strongest area of the team so he has to get in ahead of them.

"And even if you play him in a wider role where he plays a lot for Burnley, you then have the likes of Graham Dorrans who is doing well for his club.

"He has to get ahead of them but we will do our due diligence and when Gordon starts to finalise his squad we will be considering what we have seen up until then, to know if we will bring them in or not."
