MORTON loan goalkeeper Ross Doohan says the prospect of facing the Auld Enemy for Scotland Under-21s is a mouth-watering one.

Doohan was called up on Tuesday by Scotland boss Scot Gemmill for upcoming UEFA European Championship qualifiers against Aidy Boothroyd’s England and Latvia respectively. 

And the stopper — on loan from Celtic — insists he’s delighted to be involved.

He told the Tele: “It’s really good to be involved with that sort of stuff and it’s good experience to be going away with the national side. It’s good recognition as well.

“I’ve been away with the under-21s just once before, it was a trip to Slovakia. But I’ve represented Scotland at every other age group coming through from the 15s all the way up to the under-20s.

“Obviously everything with the national set-up is completely different. You’re always in your hotel, training is different and it’s nice to be able to play with other boys from other clubs that maybe you’re only used to playing against. 

“The England game will be a really good game to be involved in with the Scotland/England rivalry. 

“Hopefully we can go and win that.

“But being surrounded by good players can only make you better and hopefully that can help me improve as a goalkeeper.”

Doohan is yet to make an appearance for Ton, thanks in part to number one keeper Derek Gaston’s fine form. 

But he maintains that he has still learned plenty of tricks in the short time he has been at Cappielow so far.

He said: “Playing for Morton has been a different experience for me so far from playing at youth level for so long. 

“Coming into a first team dressing room is different, but it’s good.

“If I get the chance to play for Morton I just have to be ready to take that chance. You play to win at a club like Morton, it’s not like at youth level where that’s more about how you play. 

“You need to get the win and the three points, which has developed me as a football player.”
