Scotland manager Walter Smith is happy to be able to call on Barry Ferguson again.
The Rangers captain is back in the international setup following injury and Smith is pleased to welcome Ferguson back to the fold, after he named his squad for the forthcoming Euro 2008 qualifiers with France and Ukraine.
"He's ready to come back now," Smith told Sky Sports News.
"He's had a number of games now and his match fitness will obviously improve with each game he plays.
"That's another aspect of it and we will have to sit down and have a chat when we get together.
"I hope he feels okay, he's had a number of games and I think he himself would indicate he is getting a bit better as the games go on."
Smith also named Lee McCulloch and James McFadden, even though neither have played any football since the last set of international games.
"Both Lee McCulloch and James McFadden have both not played since the previous international but both hope to be involved with their club sides over the weekend.
"So it is a matter of putting them in and once they come along (to the squad) we will see how they get over the weekend games."
One player missing is Gary Naysmith due to a knee injury and the Scottish coach is unhappy to have lost the Everton man.
"We are disappointed to lose Gary Naysmith in the sense that he is the one true left back that we have who plays in that position on a regular basis," he added.
