Scotland skipper Darren Fletcher has declared himself fit and ready to feature in both World Cup qualifiers against Wales and Belgium.

The Manchester United midfielder was out of action for almost a year with a chronic bowel complaint, but despite what he has gone through with the illness over a number of gruelling months, Fletcher insists he is ready for action if called upon by manager Craig Levein.

Speaking ahead of Friday's clash in Cardiff, he said: "I feel ready to play both matches. I feel fit, I feel strong and I feel ready for the games. It's great to be back.
