Rangers forward Steven Naismith was disappointed the club were unable to bring David Goodwillie to Ibrox.
The SPL champions were keen on landing the ex-Dundee United marksman, however, he finally moved to Blackburn last week.
Rangers failed to agree terms with the Tangerines and Naismith is gutted he was unable to line up alongside the striker at club level.
However, the pair could link up for Scotland against Denmark and the Gers man feels Goodwillie is now ready to impress for his country.
"David's a quality player so I would have definitely liked him to join Rangers," explained Naismith.
"But as a club we move on. It's hard for the Old Firm to compete with Premiership teams these days because there is such a gulf in the money that can be offered.
"David can definitely make an impact with the national side. He has arguably been the best young player in Scotland over the past two or three years. Full credit to him for getting his move because he thoroughly deserves it.
"He has been through a lot of personal problems but has still managed to go out and perform every week. That's a credit to him. He is definitely a player I really like and a good addition to the international scene."
