Gray given Scotland chance
Bob Malcolm in action for Scotland's fringe side
Scotland's Future Team drew 3-3 in Germany
Scotland manager Berti Vogts has given Bradford City's Andy Gray the opportunity to impress at international level.

The tall hitman was the most notable addition to Vogts' Future Squad, which takes on their Turkish equivalent on 25 February at the Ataturk Stadium in Antalya.

The Scots have already enjoyed a degree of success in the mini-tournament, which also includes the Czech Republic and Germany, when they were held to a last-minute 3-3 draw by the Germans in Mainz in December.

Now Vogts is hoping Gray can add more firepower to the squad which travels to Turkey.

He said: "He has scored a lot of goals for Bradford and that is why I have included him, although I don't know much about him yet."

Gray, 25, began his career with Leeds United before a 200,000 move to Nottingham Forest in 1998.

Having failed to establish himself at the City Ground, Gray moved to Bradford on a free transfer last summer and has managed to bag 11 goals this season.

Senior squad members Paul Gallacher and Bob Malcolm are also named along with striker Kevin Kyle, who is in the senior set-up and under-21 pool for the forthcoming matches with Ireland.

Scotland Future Squad:
Goalkeepers: Kenny Arthur (Partick), Paul Gallacher (Dundee United), Derek Stillie (Dunfermline). Defenders: Gary Caldwell (Newcastle/Coventry), Robert Malcolm (Rangers), Philip McGuire (Aberdeen), Lee Wilkie (Dundee), Scott Wilson (Dunfermline). Midfield: Peter Canero (Kilmarnock), Stephen Hughes (Rangers), Andy Liddell (Wigan), James McFadden (Motherwell), Kevin McNaughton (Aberdeen), Ian Murray (Hibernian), Scott Murray (Bristol City), Barry Nicholson (Dunfermline), Gavin Rae (Dundee), Scott Severin (Hearts), Gareth Williams (Nottingham Forest). Forwards: Scott Dobie (West Brom), Andy Gray (Bradford City), Kevin Harper (Portsmouth), Kevin Kyle (Sunderland), Garry O'Connor (Hibernian).
