Hearts winger Andrew Driver picked up the SPL young player of the month award but admitted that he has no chance of another accolade - a Scotland cap.
Andrew Driver scored twice for Hearts during September
The 19-year-old was born in England and must look there for further honours.
"I moved here when I was 11, so I've grown up in Scotland," said Driver, who scored in victories over Hearts and St Mirren during September.
"I even scored for the schoolboy side against England. I was eligible because I was at school here."
Driver had considered challenging the ruling but has admitted defeat.
Hearts have brought through a lot of players recently
"The British countries have an agreement where you're only allowed to play for a country if you've got blood relatives, so I've no chance," he told the Sunday Mail as he picked up his Clydesdale Bank award.
Oldham-born Driver praised the Hearts youth system, from which he graduated to the first team.
"Hearts have brought through a lot of players recently," he told the club website.
"There's Calum Elliot and Lee Wallace and then there's Craig Gordon, who moved away for £9m and probably paid for the building of the academy itself.
"They're also widening things by bringing young players in from abroad.
"You see that with teams like Arsenal and it's paid dividends with them."
