Football: SCOTLAND CAMP LATEST: KEEPING UP WITH CRAIG; Smith: Gordon's My No.1


Byline: By JOE McHUGH

CRAIG GORDON is set to get his chance to become Scotland's first-choice goalkeeper.

Scotland boss Walter Smith has hinted that he will pick the Hearts No.1 over Celtic pair Rab Douglas and David Marshall for the World Cup qualifiers against Moldova and Belarus in June.

Scotland boss Walter Smith said: "Craig had an hour against Italy which was a great experience for him. So far I've had one game and two goalies!

"I'm happy with the mix I have in terms of keepers, we've got experience with Rab and two younger keepers gaining experience. Rab and David Marshall have a lot of competition for their place at Celtic and I'll have to think carefully over my selection for these games.

"Picking a goalkeeper who isn't playing for their club isn't ideal.

"You can get away with that possibly with an outfield player but I'd prefer my goalkeeper to be playing on a regular basis."

Gordon and Marshall will line up on opposite sides at Tynecastle today, with Marshall on the Celtic bench.

Not since Andy Goram and Jim Leighton vied for the keeper's jersey have Scotland had the comfort of having two top class keeper.

Meanwhile, the lack of Scots involved in England's top flight has forced Smith to cast his eye over The Championship.

Sunderland, Preston, Wigan and Wolves will all provide players for the June double header. The Scotland boss added: "The top teams in The Championship are playing at a high standard although surviving in the Premiership gets more difficult every season.
