Scotland's new boss Craig Levein has hailed West Brom star Graham Dorrans' progress over the years.
The ex-Livingston midfielder has become a key player for the Baggies and made his international debut for Scotland against Japan last year.
Dorrans helped West Brom win promotion back to the Premier League at the first time of asking, culminating in a big-money offer from West Ham which was rejected by the Hawthorns outfit.
Levein has no qualms which club the talented 22-year-old plays for next season, although he would have had concerns had West Brom not secured their top-flight return.
Dorrans gave a man of the match display against Czech Republic earlier this year and Levein believes with his ability and charisma he can go a long way in the game.
"I'd love to take credit for that!" said Levein on Dorrans' rise to prominence.
"But it is the people at Livingston and obviously Tony Mowbray, who took him down to West Brom, who all have to take credit. But most of all it's the kid himself.
"He has grasped the opportunity. That's something that a lot of other people could learn from.
"Funnily enough I have watched him five times this season since I got this job and the first game was his poorest one. In the other four he was terrific.
"He showed with his performance against the Czech Republic that he has got a big future.
"And he looks the type of kid who has come into the game from humble beginnings, if I can put it that way.
"Players improve at different rates and I watched him as a kid and I saw him play for Livingston as well. His progress has been remarkable.
"I always think that kids who start out at a lower level understand that little bit more about where they have come from - and where they could end up if they don't get it right.
"He has got a bit of charisma on the field, he plays with a certain panache and style that maybe reminds people of Scottish players in years gone by.
"He has great individual ability, he wants to take people on and he is almost cocky to a certain extent. The more we can get like Graham Dorrans the better.
"I don't know if he will leave West Brom. He has obviously progressed extremely well there and I am not advocating in any way that he should go.
"If West Brom had stayed in the Championship, I'd have had the right as Scotland manager to express a desire to see him play at the top level."
