Charlie Adam has claimed that Rangers defender Nathan Patterson could be in the Scotland squad for the European Championships this summer.

The young Bears talent has had a rollercoaster couple of months at Ibrox, breaching COVID-19 protocols before cementing his spot in the absence of James Tavernier.

Adam believes that there is a clear spot in the national side at Hampden Park, with no one able to cement that right-back position.


Speaking on the BBC after live coverage of the clash, Adam made the big shout that the talent could be in the Scotland squad over the summer.

“Patterson obviously had his off-field issues recently but I really like him,” he said.

“I think he’s an outside shout for the national team at the Euros.”


Limited options?

Liam Palmer and Stephen O’Donnell have nailed down that spot for quite some time, but neither have really excelled in doing so.

Both are in struggling sides with Motherwell and Sheffield Wednesday, both have been fighting relegation in their respective leagues.

Patterson, on the other hand, has come into one of the most successful sides in Europe and has already proved himself as good enough.

The 19-year-old has only completed 204 minutes of league action this season but is already catching the eye massively in all competitions.

Steven Gerrard claimed that Patterson became a man against Slavia Praha last night, and that could be the first hint that he is ready for this chance with Scotland.
