AFC Bournemouth winger Ryan Fraser insists that he is concentrating on his performances for the Cherries rather than thoughts of a call up to the full Scotland squad.

The 22 year old has grabbed a few headlines this season with his performances for the Cherries in the Premier League.

His immediate impact against Liverpool was the catalyst for AFC Bournemouth’s dramatic last minute comeback victory against the Premier League title contenders.

He has also gone on to score against both Swansea City and Arsenal and could now be on the brink of a Scotland call up by Gordon Strachan in March.

Fraser told the Daily Echo

‘I played under Ricky Sbragia and Billy Stark for the under-21s and I liked them as managers, and scored a couple of goals as well.

‘I did alright and enjoyed it, because I came up through the age groups with all the other players. You saw other players making it into the senior team and were buzzing for them.

‘But for me, if Scotland never comes, it never comes. It’s one of those things where I want to be playing well for Bournemouth and, if a call-up happens, I’ll be happy.

‘If it happens this season, it happens but if it doesn’t, I’m not going to moan about it. As long as I’m playing for Bournemouth, that’s where I want to be performing.’

I think it’s funny that he’s apparently not good enough for Scotland yet. Seriously, is there anyone in the PL quicker over 5 metres?Join the conversation here.
