Ahead of games against Costa Rica and Hungary, Rovers and Scotland skipper Charlie Mulgrew cannot wait to pull on the shirt again for his country.

Included in new manager Alex McLeish's first Scotland squad, 32-year-old Mulgrew has also been rewarded with his fine displays for Rovers by being handed the captain's armband for McLeish's maiden game as boss.
A rock at the back and with goals in his locker too, Charlie will lead his country out at Hampden Park on Friday and is relishing the opportunity to walk out at the national stadium once again.
“I love representing my country. It’s a huge thing for me and I’m delighted to be involved again," Mulgrew began. "We’ve a new manager and I’m pleased he has picked me in the squad. It’s up to me to stay there now.
“I’m looking forward to the games and I’ll do everything I can to be ready for the games when I come back from international duty."
In his second spell as boss of the national side, Charlie has never played under McLeish's rule, but admits his fellow Glaswegian has had an impressive career to date and knows all about the 59-year-old.
“Everybody is looking forward to playing under the new manager. We’re all excited, it’s something different and he has had a very good managerial career," Charlie confessed.
“I remember when he was at Rangers and he did very well there, at Hibernian and at Birmingham so we’re very pleased to have him with us."
Good luck, skip!
