Bryson is now hoping former England boss Steve McClaren can help him realise his international ambitions with Scotland.

Strachan has also been taken by the displays of the 26 year old, who must have a terrific chance of featuring against the Croats. Bryson said: "Steve is a really good manager with good experience and I am looking forward to working with him and hopefully he can improve me as a player.
Hugely impressive performances for Derby this season made his claims for inclusion impossible to ignore.
"I built on those performances over the next two seasons and I have started well this year.

"In my first season I was player of the year at Derby but I never really got a sniff.

Asked if he had lost hope during Levein's reign, Bryson said: "I did. You would get a wee bit excited before the squad came out but I always ended up being disappointed when the squad was announced. I did stop looking if I am being honest.
"I've been overlooked in the past by a few managers when I thought I was playing well at Kilmarnock and down south.
