Scotland midfielder Charlie Adam has rejected suggestions that Steven Fletcher's return to the squad could cause friction in the dressing room.

The Sunderland forward has been brought back into the fold by manager Craig Levein ahead of Friday's crucial World Cup qualifier against Wales with the nation struggling for goals.

Fletcher has not featured for his country since informing the SFA he did not wish to be selected for a fixture against Northern Ireland in February 2011.

But he has since settled his differences with Levein and Adam believes that everyone is pulling in the same direction as they look to get their qualification campaign back on track.

"What happened has happened, it's done and dusted. Let's move on. It's up to the manager if he plays but for us, it's good to have him in the squad because he adds to the quality that we already have."

The Stoke player said: "You want your best players available. He is one of our best players and it is good to see him back involved.

"What happened has happened, it's done and dusted. Let's move on. It's up to the manager if he plays but for us, it's good to have him in the squad because he adds to the quality that we already have.

"Whoever plays up front, as a pair or on their own, they will be trying to do the best for their country.

"We are all in the same boat - we want to get to Brazil and hopefully the quality that has come into the squad for these two games can enhance our chances."
