It looks like all Benito Floro needs to do is offer a full cap to Rangers midfielder Fraser Aird to ensure the 19-year-old’s future is Canadian.
Born in Toronto but much-desired for Scotland’s upcoming U-19 tournament, The Daily Record said Aird is thinking Canada as he waits for Floro’s call ahead of next month’s friendlies against Moldova and Bulgaria:
“I’m waiting to find out if I’m named in the squad. It hasn’t been announced but if I’m in it then it will be a big honour for me to be involved with the first team.
“I need to speak to the gaffer and decide what is best for me. I’ve done well here but the biggest achievement you can have in your career is playing for your country.
“I just need to wait and see what happens with the squad.”
The midfielder has scored six times for Rangers in Scotland’s third-tier as they’ve continued their rise back towards the top flight after a banishment to the lower levels. Rangers will play next season in the Championship. Ally McCoist has pushed him in the direction of Scotland, apparently to no avail.
