Levein explains Fletcher stance

BY foxsports • May 17, 2011

Fletcher pulled himself out of consideration for Scotland's Carling Nations Cup opener against Northern Ireland in February. He has been in fine domestic form of late, aiding Wolves' Premier League survival bid, and would have been a useful addition to Levein's latest squad. The Scotland manager is refusing to select the 24-year-old, though, until he is informed by the former Hibernian and Burnley forward that he wishes to be drafted back in. Levein said: "The situation with Steven is exactly the same as before - if Steven indicates to me that he wants to be involved in the Scotland national team, then I'll consider him." When asked if the door was not closed for Fletcher, Levein said: "He just needs to open it. I have absolutely no problem with Steven, as I've said in previous times, but really I'm here to talk about people who are selected."
