Tottenham defender Alan Hutton is looking to secure his place back in the Scotland side.
The right-back has returned from injury in recent weeks at Spurs and has produced some solid performances under new boss Harry Redknapp.
Hutton is hopeful his form with Spurs will cement his place in the national squad.
"First and foremost you have to be doing well for your club before your country looks at you," Hutton told Sky Sports News.
"So it has been a good time for myself, I have come back in with a good manager and I am playing quite well, so hopefully I can carry on with my Scotland career."
Scotland boss George Burley has taken some criticism after taking charge, but Hutton is fully behind him.
"You want to have a manager, if you need motivation - he is there to do that, it is a massive job and even though we haven't had great results, I am sure he will do a great job," he added.
Hutton is now in line to feature for Scotland in their next match which is the highly prestigious friendly with Argentina next week.
