Wolves manager Mick McCarthy has urged Scotland boss Craig Levein and Steven Fletcher to resolve their differences.

Wolves striker Fletcher controversially texted the Scottish Football Association in February to say he no longer wished to be selected for international duty. The highly-publicised withdrawal developed into a stand-off between Fletcher and Levein and the former Hibernian striker has not beein in a Scotland squad since.

McCarthy, who played for and managed the Republic of Ireland, was in Glasgow today for a fund-raising lunch for the Prince and Princess of Wales Hospice: and said: "I have said to him (Fletcher) that I've been an international player and an international manager and I understand all the things that go along with that. And playing for your country is the best thing you can do."
