“And I think England are producing great young players who are representing their country and that can only be a good thing.
“Hopefully Scotland can follow that!”

Mauricio Pochettino to Bayern Munich?
Bayern Munich boss Hansi Flick has refused to consider Mauricio Pochettino replacing him at the club.
“It’s not my job to analyse a coach colleague. I think this is inappropriate.
“At the end it is like this: the club has all options for the future to look what they really want. And that’s why it doesn’t matter to me which names are circulating right now.
“I won’t express myself concerning those names because I am not interested in them. Because I am doing my job right now and try to be successful with the team. Everything else I am not interested in.”

Celtic could struggle to sign Victor Wanyama
Celtic’s hopes of landing Victor Wanyama in the January transfer window have hit a snag after Jose Mourinho’s arrival at Tottenham.
The Hoops are keen to bring the out-of-favour Kenyan back to Parkhead after his previous two-year spell in Glasgow.
Hopes of landing Wanyama are now up in the air, given Pochettino’s sacking and the subsequent arrival of Mourinho, according to reports.
Football Insider claim that Mourinho is eager to assess the entire Spurs squad before deciding who he’s willing to offload in January.

Jurgen Klopp gives Xherdan Shaqiri transfer update
Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp insists Xherdan Shaqiri has a future at the club, despite suggestions the winger could leave Anfield next month.
Shaqiri has found first-team football hard to come by since joining the Reds from Stoke last July.
Klopp is well aware of the speculation linking the Switzerland star with a January transfer but is adamant he is still part of his plans.
He said: “Why should I talk about something that’s outside? We spoke earlier [in the season] that he wasn’t playing as much as he wanted to.
“Speculation is speculation. Completely fine here. Of course, he has a future here.”
