Cap’s off to Kenny

Rutherglen Reformer - - Motoring Guide -

Cam­bus­lang’s Kenny McLean re­ceived his third in­ter­na­tional cap as Scot­land won in Hun­gary last week.

The for­mer Cathkin High School pupil was brought off the sub­sti­tutes’bench with 20 min­utes left to play in last Tues­day’s 1-0 win.

McLean, 26, who grew up in the Cir­cuit area of Cam­bus­lang, was ex­cited by in­volve­ment at the dawn of another new set-up.

He has earned three caps un­der three man­agers in each of the last three years af­ter Gor­don Strachan (v Czech Repub­lic, March 2016) and Malky Mackay (v Hol­land, Novem­ber 2017).

He said:“It is a bit weird but no mat­ter who is in charge, you just have to take ev­ery­thing in, be like a sponge, just listen to ev­ery­thing they have to say,.

“The aim is to get a bit of a run un­der one man­ager but I’m also aware there are plenty boys in my po­si­tion look­ing to get in that team.

“If I am lucky enough to be in­volved again it will ex­cel­lent.”

McLean joined up with Peter Grant, ex-Nor­wich City boss, who is now the as­sis­tant to McLeish at Scot­land.

The lo­cal lad agreed to move from Aberdeen to Car­row Road this sum­mer.
