Allan McGregor is looking forward to the future with Scotland after making his international return last week.
The Rangers goalkeeper had been banned from the national team, along with Barry Ferguson, following the 'Boozegate' affair last April.
However, new boss Craig Levein allowed him back into the fold after replacing George Burley at the helm.
McGregor was called up for the friendly against Sweden last Wednesday and started in the absence of injured No.1 Craig Gordon.
Scotland slumped to a 3-0 defeat but McGregor's own performance proved to be one of the few highlights.
He is no longer thinking about the difficulties of his past and wants to focus on playing as big a role as possible for Scotland.
"I was obviously disappointed with the result in Sweden but I was happy to be back in the team and playing for my country again," he told Rangers News.
"It was great that Craig Levein wanted me back.
"Everything that's happened in the past is dead and buried now and I'm just pleased to be part of it all once more.
"I'm looking forward to the qualifying campaign. I don't know if Craig Gordon will miss the second pair of games in October but hopefully there's an opportunity for me to play.
"I'm not bothered about me though - I just hope the team does well and we win both games. If I can play a part in that, I'd be glad to."
