Rhodes eager for more

10 September 2012

Rovers striker delighted after making his competitive debut for Scotland.

Jordan Rhodes made his first appearance for Scotland as a Rovers player in the goalless draw with Serbia on Saturday.

The record signing had to settle for a place on the bench as Craig Levein's Scotland kicked off their World Cup qualification campaign, but came on with ten minutes remaining at Hampden.

The home fans chanted Rhodes name throughout before the 22-year-old was eventually introduced on 81 minutes.

"It was fantastic just to go out there," said Rhodes. "It was a dream come true to go out there and step out in front of those fans at a World Cup campaign.

"It was every exciting and it doesn't get much more exciting than that."

After the draw with Serbia, Scotland will be looking to claim all three points when they face Macedonia at Hampden this Tuesday with Rhodes hoping to play some part in that match.

"Serbia were very good, solid and tough to break down at times, so I thought it was a good performance and sets us up quite nicely going into the game on Tuesday," added the Rovers striker.

"We will try our best and do what we can and hopefully that is good enough on the night."
