SCOTT Brown has described the current Scotland dressing room as the best he has known in an international career dating back to 2005, when he made his debut against the USA.

The captain recalled occasions when he didn’t know where to sit due to club factions.

Asked whether today’s Scotland team is the best he has played in, he agreed, adding: “It is the best dressing room I have been in as well. We used to have the old Rangers and Celtic thing and stuff like that, but it is a great place to be now and everyone is chirpy and chatting as well. You can sit beside anyone and there are no problems whatsoever. It is a good place to be.

“I wouldn’t say there were cliques, but it was weird when I first came in. You could see, automatically, that the Rangers players would sit beside Rangers players because they were best mates and Celtic would sit beside Celtic.

“I came in from Hibs and was going: ‘Where the f*** am I sitting? Am I supposed to be in this squad?’ “I wouldn’t say it made it harder for the team to gel. The same people were playing week in, week out together. It is probably harder now, but the lads are working harder at it.”
