St Johnstone midfielder Jody Morris is open to the idea of turning out for Scotland, having turned his career around since moving north of the border.
The former Chelsea schemer has rediscovered his best form upon joining St Johnstone, thriving under former Millwall team-mate Derek McInnes at McDiarmid Park.
His sterling performances were rewarded last week with a new two-year contract, while his vice-captain status is testimony to a new found maturity.
Morris, whose career in England was plagued by a bad-boy reputation, has a Scottish grandfather and admits the idea of representing Scotland is one that appeals.
"I have family up here and my granddad is from Glasgow," he told the Daily Record.
"Playing for Scotland is not something I have thought about before - but I would now.
"I've had a new lease of life since coming to St Johnstone two years ago. I'm happy here and enjoying my football.
"I'm loving the SPL. It's good to be settled now I'm older and have added responsibility."
