DAVID MARSHALL insists he is out to reclaim his place in the Scotland squad after securing a move to QPR.

The national team hero was frozen out completely at Derby County under Wayne Rooney.

The 36-year-old hasn't played a competitive game since playing for Steve Clarke's men at the Euros last summer.

Being cast to the shelf meant that the penalty-kick saving hero understandably lost his spot in the national team set-up - with Craig Gordon now very much first choice.

Mark Warburton has handed the Scot a fresh chance to catch the eye of Clarke, with game-time up for grabs at Loftus Road. 

And Marshall is aiming to exactly that ahead of the World Cup play-offs in March.

He told Go Radio's Football Show: “I spoke to the manager towards the end of August. I was trying to get out and find a club at the time but Derby told me the situation really late and everyone was set with their keepers.

“So I have no issue with that - you are not playing games and you need to be right for international duty.

“Hopefully that can change for me, Steve has been great so I completely understand the reasoning behind that.

“I’ll be looking to perform well and catch Steve’s eye again.”

He added: “The frustration for me was when I never got out from Derby in the summer and I was almost redundant for four months. I knew I wasn’t going to play football until January unless under exceptional circumstances.

“It’s difficult to train Monday to Friday then the weekend passes you by. You see the Scotland games, how important and big they are. You don’t realise how much you miss it.

“If I’d got that move in the summer or continued to play for Derby I feel I’d still have been there (Scotland squad).

“Anyone who plays for Scotland or their country will tell you how important it is. But my personal circumstances, how well it was going, and the tournament in the summer probably makes it hurt that little bit more.

“I need to get myself back fit and playing well to get back in the manager’s thoughts.”
