Aird, who has played 84 games for the Gers since progressing through their academy system, started his international career in the youth teams of Scotland, playing for both Under-17 and Under-19 teams.
However, Canada approached him concerning switch his allegiance - he was born in Toronto - and the 20-year-old opted to accept the invitation to be called up for the squad for the current international break.
He went on to make his debut against Ghana, entering the field at half-time and playing the entire second period in the impressive 1-1 draw at RFK Stadium.
Aird will now be returning to Ibrox hoping to fight his way back into Mark Warburton’s senior set-up, having found himself out of the team since the manger’s appointment in the summer.
The youngster has managed just three appearances in all competitions this term, and he will be looking to impress Warburton enough to claim a starting role in the coming weeks.
