Gordon Strachan says Darren Fletcher is a 'smashing advert for any kid' as he prepares to earn his 75th Scotland cap
Gordon Strachan insists his Scotland skipper Darren Fletcher is the international poster-boy kids should want to be.
The West Brom star will earn his 75th cap against Lithuania on Saturday and will join Paul McStay on the all-time caps list if he also faces Slovakia on Tuesday.
As well as saluting the midfielder for resisting the ‘tattoo and headphone’ culture, Strachan insists Fletcher is the perfect man to lead his country in the World Cup qualifiers.
