Scotland boss George Burley has confirmed Barry Ferguson will return to the side for Wednesday's glamour friendly with Argentina.
Ferguson has not featured for his country for a year because of injury, but is now ready to make his first start under Burley.
The midfielder has proved his fitness by playing in Rangers' last two games after recovering from ankle surgery.
Ferguson will go straight into the starting line-up and lead out Scotland at Hampden Park as they look to spoil Diego Maradona's first game in charge of Argentina.
Burley is delighted to have Ferguson available again and he believes he is fit to play the full 90 minutes if needed.
"Barry is going to start, and we will have a look at it," said Burley.
"He's back from a long-term injury and he has played two 90 minutes for Rangers.
"It's good to have him back, and we are pleased he is fit again. But we will see how it goes."
TargetFerguson admitted he had one eye on the Argentina game as he worked on regaining his fitness.
"It's obviously a game that everyone in the squad, not just myself, is desperate to play in.
"Argentina are one of the best teams about and have some fantastic players.
"When I found out we were going to be playing them, it was one of the games I was desperate to get back and get involved in - and thankfully my rehab has gone well."
Ferguson admits facing Maradona has added extra spice to the clash and he is a big fan of the former World Cup winner.
"Obviously I watched him when I was a younger boy, he is a legend up in Scotland and we know the reason why.
"He was a fantastic player and it's great to be involved against Maradona. They also have some exceptional players and it is a good test for us."
