Villa Striker A Jock?
Scotland manager Alex McLeish is trying to persuade Villa striker Gabriel Agbonlahor to team up with fellow Villan Shaun Maloney and play international football for Scotland.
20-year-old Gabby can play for England, Nigeria or Scotland and has recently missed out on the England U21 squad to play in the UEFA Under-21 Championships due to a cock up with communications between Stuart Pearce, Martin O'Neill and the young striker.
Former Villa coach Roy Aitken is also part of McLeish's coaching team (and the main reason I'm mentioning that is I've an unused image of him, so hey ho, lets give it an outing!) so he has been able to advise as to the skills of our Gabby.
Aitken, who was number two to David O'Dearme told the Sunday Post:
'It's part of my job working for Scotland but based in England to keep up to date with things. I speak to club managers all the time concerning players eligible to play for Scotland. Gabriel certainly comes into that category, as does James Morrison at Middlesbrough, despite being born in Darlington.'
