BARRIE MCKAY is determined to keep improving his game after winning his first cap for Scotland against France at the weekend.
The 21 year old winger made his debut for Scotland against France on Saturday at Stade Saint-Symphorien, Metz in a 3-0 defeat.
McKay enjoyed an excellent season under Mark Warburton, winning PFA Goal of the Season and Rangers’ Young Player of the Year for season 2015/16.
After his scintillating season for the Gers and winning his first cap, McKay shows no sign of stopping and is determined to keep adding to his game and becoming a better footballer.
Speaking after the match on Saturday, McKay said: “You can always improve. I am sure the players we played against would say the same, they would say that they have still got a long way to go. Quite a few of them are still quite young, they are my age or even younger than me.
“The manager said to go and enjoy it and try to get involved as much as you can. That was it really. He just said to go on and enjoy the occasion.
“I would love to play for my country again. I have always said that, even if it is at under-21 level or first-team level. I would just love to play.”
The winger, who played 48 times for the Light Blues this season, scoring nine goals in those matches came on with just a few minutes of the match in France remaining.
‘It was the first cap for my country at first-team level. I came up through the youth system in Scotland, so to be able to make my first-team debut was a proud moment for me.
‘Unfortunately, the result wasn’t what we wanted. That would have made it an even more special occasion for myself. I think I did okay playing against one of the best teams, if not the best team, in Europe.
“It was always going to be hard to get a few touches on the ball, but I did do it.”
