Liverpool defender Danny Wilson has admitted he may have to consider a loan move this season in a bid to boost his international career.
The 19-year-old made just eight appearances last term following his switch to Anfield from Rangers a year ago.
The young defender partnered Gary Caldwell in Scotland's 2-1 win over Denmark but knows he will need more game time at club level if he hopes to retain a place in boss Craig Levein's plans.
Asked if a loan switch could be an option, Wilson said: "It's been mentioned but there have been no offers yet so it's difficult to try to decide what's going to happen.
"If there are no offers, you can't really do much about it so I'm just working hard and trying to keep a part of things. But we've got a lot of players now at Liverpool and it's going to be difficult.
"There are five centre-backs there and we are all of good quality so the manager has a difficult decision and whatever his decision is, I'll respect that.
"I didn't play enough last season and I wouldn't really like to repeat that next season. I can only do what I'm doing.
"If it's enough, it's enough. If it's not, I'll just need to work that bit harder."
Rangers have been linked with a move to bring back Wilson on loan and he admits he would be open to returning to Ibrox.
He said: "I don't see why not, if the option was there. But the option's not there so it's difficult for me to comment on that.
"I'll consider any team, once the offers come in I'll evaluate them and decide what's best for me and my career."
Wilson was used in an unfamiliar left-back role last season and says he would be more than happy to demonstrate his versatility once again if it meant nailing down a place in Kenny Dalglish's side.
He said: "I'm a centre-back but if the manager decides that he wants me at left-back I can't have any problems with that and I'll do it no problem at all.
"If he wants to put me in goal, I'll go in goal. I'm one of those kind of players who always gives my all for the team wherever I'm chosen to play."
On his national team hopes, Wilson added: "If I'm playing more regularly it's better for me and it's better for the team.
"He (Levein) says he obviously wants me to be playing a bit more regularly and I can fully understand that. I want that myself.
"He's not said to me that I have to be playing but obviously it helps if I'm out there playing."
