LEE McCullough's decision to make himself available again for Scotland has been welcomed by manager Craig Levein.

McCullough announced his international retirement during George Burley's reign as Scotland boss as he did not feel rated by the former Ipswich Town manager.

But McCullough has now reversed his decision upon Levein's appointment and could be named in the squad to face the Czech Republic in a friendly on March 3.

“I know all about Lee,” said Levein. “The great advantage for me of having been a manager in the SPL is I have seen a lot of him over the years.
