Tartan Army hero James McFadden has tipped Chris Burke for a dramatic Scotland recall.

The Kilmarnock winger has been in superb form this season and netted his fourth goal in 11 games from the penalty spot in the 3-1 victory over Livingston.

Now 36, Burke won the last of his seven caps for his country as a late substitute in the friendly win over Poland six years ago.

The former Rangers, Cardiff and Birmingham City attacker joined Killie in 2017 - where he played under Scotland boss Steve Clarke - and has since played more than 100 times for the Rugby Park side.

And McFadden, who is just a year older at 37, has joked he is jealous of the sparkling displays the veteran has put in as he has defied his age.

He said: “Chris Burke this season is rolling back the years.

“Sometimes you see players as they get older dropping deeper and maybe coming in and using their nous and their knowhow, and making other players do the running for them.

“But Chris Burke is all action, he doesn’t look like he’s lost any pace, he looks fit, he looks strong, he’s intelligent, his numbers are excellent.

“He’s been a real star man for Kilmarnock.

“He plays every week, he’s so fit, he’s so reliable for them. He seems to be getting better with age.

“I’m a wee bit jealous, because he’s roughly the same age as me and I wish I was still playing!”

He added to BBC Scotland: “I wouldn’t rule [a Scotland call-up] out.

“Steve Clarke came out and said after the last game, when [Paul] Hanlon and [Andrew] Considine got in, that players should go back to their clubs and tell their mates.

“The message was, if you’re playing well, it doesn’t matter how old you are, who you are, you’ve got a chance of getting in.

“I wouldn’t be surprised to see him coming in, because you know if he’s picked he won’t let you down. His performance levels this season have been magnificent.

“And it would be a great story if he managed to force his way back into the Scotland set-up.”
