GORDON STRACHAN insists Celtic captain Scott Brown will lead Scotland into our World Cup campaign in September.
The international boss rejected claims the Hoops skipper was contemplating shelving his Scottish career at the age of 30 to concentrate on club football.
And although he sympathises with players who opt to retire from cap calls, Strachan said: “Nobody in the squad has spoken to me about that.
“I can understand when you get to a certain age, you think: ‘I’ve given it my best shot.’
“Is Scott weighing it up, though? No. You’ll have to ask him but I know he’s not weighing it up.”
Scotland have been drawn alongside England, Slovakia, Slovenia, Lithuania and Malta in their quest to reach Russia in 2018.
