Fletcher to train with Scotland

Published Add your comment

Manchester United midfielder Darren Fletcher will meet up and train with the Scotland squad this week, manager Craig Levein has announced.

The 28-year-old's career was seemingly in the balance when Red Devils boss Sir Alex Ferguson revealed last month that the Scotland captain was yet to return to training following a long-standing chronic bowel complaint.

But Levein, who named his squad for the upcoming friendly with Australia this morning, confirmed Fletcher is now on his way back to playing competitive football for the first time since November.
