Strachan Calls On Rams
Derby County trio Craig Forsyth, Craig Bryson and Chris Martin have all been selected in Gordon Strachan`s Scotland for their international friendly at the end of this month.
Scotland will take on Nigeria at Fulham`s Craven Cottage on 28th May with Forsyth and Martin being named in the squad for the first time whilst Bryson will be looking to add to his solitary cap so far. Manager Strachan is looking forward to working with Martin having checked on his availability to represent Scotland and told dcfc.co.uk:
'He's got a physical presence, but he's a footballer. He's not the quickest, but he's got a quick mind, he sees people in, he scores goals and, when the ball comes up to him, it very rarely goes back the other way."

Goalkeepers: Cammy Bell (Rangers), Matt Gilks (Blackpool), David Marshall (Cardiff City), Allan McGregor (Hull City)
Defenders: Christophe Berra (Ipswich Town), Gary Caldwell (Wigan Athletic), Craig Forsyth (Derby County), Gordon Greer (Brighton and Hove Albion), Grant Hanley (Blackburn Rovers), Alan Hutton (Aston Villa), Charlie Mulgrew (Celtic). Andrew Robertson (Dundee United), Steven Whittaker (Norwich City)
