Maloney relieved with Scotland return

Published Add your comment

Shaun Maloney was envious of Wigan team-mates Gary Caldwell and James McArthur's involvement with Scotland before making his own return to the national set-up.

The winger is back in the squad ahead of this weekend's friendly against the USA in Jacksonville and is set to earn his first cap since a win over the Faroe Islands in November 2010.

He told the Scottish FA website: "Of course you are very envious when you're not involved with Scotland and see team-mates like Gary Caldwell and James McArthur going off to meet up with squads. I did miss it and I think that was part of my motivation to get back into the team with Wigan, so I was happy to get the call-up this time."
