Scott Brown: The Celtic captain could be involved for Scotland against Wales and Belgium
Scotland could be boosted in their faltering World Cup qualifying campaign by the return of Scott Brown for October's double-header against Wales and Belgium.
The Celtic captain missed the disappointing opening two games against Serbia and Macedonia at Hampden with a hip problem.
But speaking ahead of his club's UEFA Champions League Group G clash with Spartak Moscow, Brown said: "Hopefully I can make the Scotland squad.
"I am feeling good just now, I have played four or five games in the last couple of weeks and everything feels good.
"So I think the rest has definitely done me good, that's for sure."
Meanwhile, after a goalless draw in Celtic's first group game at home against Benfica, Brown is looking to go one better against Spartak.
He said: "I think we played well at home (against Benfica), I think we were unlucky that we didn't create as many chances as we would like to have done.
"We have got players in the team who can score - Kris Commons, who is dangerous from 20 yards out, Gary Hooper is on form as well so hopefully we can take this into the game
"We have had a few away victories in Europe this season and hopefully we can take that form into this game as well.
"But it is going to be hard, Spartak are a good team and we are going to have to play very well."
