McGregor: Miller backing
Scotland striker Kenny Miller is confident Allan McGregor will not let his country down if called upon for the forthcoming Euro 2012 qualifiers.
McGregor appears poised to be selected by manager Craig Levein after Sunderland goalkeeper Craig Gordon suffered a broken arm on Friday.
Rangers shot-stopper McGregor has not featured for his nation since his involvement in the infamous "Boozegate" affair.
Nonetheless, Levein has indicated he is prepared to turn to Miller's Gers team-mate McGregor for the games against Lithuania and Liechtenstein in September.
He said: "As much as it's disappointing for Craig, we had a wee bit of a chuckle that Allan might be right back in after his last episode with the national team.
"Allan is a top goalie and, if he's given the nod in Craig's absence, he won't let anybody down. It's down to Allan and it's down to the manager to pick him.
"We see him every week at Rangers and he is a top goalie.
"Probably with anybody else, he would have been number one with the national team so he has been a bit unfortunate that he's not nailed that spot down for himself already."
