Colchester United striker Chris Iwelumo was devastated to miss out on Alex McLeish's first Scotland squad.
The ex-Rangers boss recently named a 30-man pool for a two-day get together, but Iwelumo was not included.
The 28-year-old, who has 15 goals for The U's this season, believes his form merits a chance to impress on the international stage.
"I've scored 15 goals and I've not even had a sniff of the 'B' squad," stated Iwelumo.
"I think the SPL is on a par with the Championship so I was devastated. I don't know if Alex McLeish knows whether I'm Scottish or not.
"Maybe I'll have to put 'Mac' in front of my surname. But I'll keep my chin up and hopefully keep scoring."
