Alan Hutton has backed former Rangers team-mate Kirk Broadfoot to fill his boots for Scotland's World Cup qualifier against Norway.

The Tottenham right-back will miss the crucial Hampden clash on October 11 as he recovers from a stress fracture of his right foot but is confident Broadfoot can step into the breach.

Hutton told the Scottish Daily Mail: "It's a massive disappointment to me that I'm going to miss another World Cup qualifier but Kirk can go in for Scotland against Norway at Hampden and do the job."

He added: "It's a vital game for the country but I have no doubts about Kirk's ability or mentality.

"I leapt off my chair when he scored in Iceland. I'm a Scotland fan but I was thrilled for him on a personal basis.

"Kirk is a strong character and that's a massive plus point for a footballer. At a club like Rangers, there are always going to be people who take flak from sections of the support.

"He's handled everything that's been thrown at him so far really well and is still improving as a player."
