Gary Caldwell could make his first appearance in over three months when Scotland face Georgia on Saturday.

The Celtic defender has not played since November due to an ankle injury, but was included in Alex McLeish's first Scotland squad for a Euro 2008 qualifying double header.

Caldwell's Celtic team-mate Steven Pressley is suspended for Saturday's game at Hampden, and assistant boss Andy Watson admits that Scotland could turn to the man who scored their famous winning goal against France back in October.

"We have to look at the players who have been regulars in the team and assess their form and fitness levels," Watson told the Daily Record.

"We also have to look at the Georgians, assess their strengths and figure out who we need playing against them.

"Gary is here in the squad and I'd like to think anybody in the squad has a chance of playing."

After facing Georgia, Scotland face a daunting trip to play World Cup winners Italy on Wednesday as they attempt to hold onto top spot in Group B.
