Scott Robertson declared himself as delighted to be given a late call-up for the Scotland squad for their game in Sweden on Wednesday.

The Arabs midfielder originally made his international debut against Argentina at Hampden Park back in 2008.

But he then proceeded to suffer a series of disappointments after being affected by an ongoing groin problem.

“I would say I am surprised but delighted,” Robertson told The Courier. “It has been a long road for me since I made my Scotland debut against Argentina.

“Back then George Burley was the manager so a lot has happened since,” he added. “I haven’t really played that much first-team football, was never fully fit and kept breaking down with the injury.

“I still have discomfort but that is probably coming from scar tissue from all the operations I have had ? three on that one area.

“I am really feeling good now and hopefully that has been showing in my recent performances.”
