St Johnstone midfielder Murray Davidson’s early-season form has been rewarded by another Scotland call-up.
Caretaker national manager Billy Stark, the former St Johnstone manager and his U21 coach, has summoned Davidson into his depleted squad for tomorrow’s friendly in Luxembourg.
And if he makes a belated national team debut, he will become the first Perth player to be capped for Scotland since keeper Sandy McLaren back in 1932.
Saints manager Steve Lomas, who rated the star in the £1million bracket, said: “It’s great news for Murray and for the club. It is recognition that is thoroughly deserved.
“It would be fantastic if Murray got game time. Everyone knows how highly I rate him and he had another fine performance against Celtic on Sunday.
“We have challenged Murray to add goals to his game and he has been superb this season.”
Davidson said: “I’ve been out of the national scene for a while so this is great news.”
