Rangers goalkeeper Allan McGregor has been playing for club and country with a knee injury, Scotland boss George Burley has revealed.

The shot-stopper suffered with knee and ankle injuries last term but returned to action for the 2008/09 campaign following surgery.

However, Burley has claimed McGregor is struggling with a build-up of fluid on the same troublesome knee, with reports suggesting he could be set for a scan on the problem this week.

Burley told the Scottish Sun: "Allan played his first full game for Scotland against Argentina and was outstanding.

"He's been troubled with an injury and had fluid in his knee for the last three or four weeks.

"He could easily have called off but was keen to play. Actually, I thought he was going to cry off beforehand because Walter Smith had a word with me and said he might.

"But Allan has thought 'No, I'll get through it'. He did and he played excellently."
