Stretch to lead young Scots

From The Evening Telegraph

Dundee United midfielder Stuart Armstrong will get the chance to shake off his Scottish Cup Final blues when he leads Scotland U/21 in a vital European qualifer against Holland tonight.

While most of his United team-mates will have to wait until next season for a game to get the defeat to St Johnstone out of their systems, Armstrong will see action as skipper in what is a make or break game for the young Scots.

Only a win at St Mirren Park will keep hopes of qualification alive and manager Billy Stark is lookng for a big performance.

Meanwhile, his team-mate, Celtic striker Callum McGregor, hopes Neil Lennon’s decision to walk away from Parkhead will open the door for his Hoops return.

The 20-year-old has spent the last year on loan with SkyBet League One outfit Notts County.

“The fact the club are changing managers will make it difficult but I’m definitely determined to come back again next year and try to break into the team,” he said.
