Glasgow Rangers star Barry McKay has told the club’s official website that he is looking to learn from the experienced players while on international duty with Scotland.

McKay enjoyed a fine campaign for Mark Warburton’s side, making 39 appearances in all competitions, scoring six goals.

His form did not go unnoticed as he was widely praised for his displays, while Gordon Strachan also handed him a call up to the Scotland squad.

The 21-year-old is in that group among several experienced pros, as he is in the Rangers squad.

And he says he is looking to learn from those more experienced players during his time away with the international team.

“I can learn a lot from the experienced professionals, just as I can and have at Rangers with the likes of Kenny [Miller] and Lee [Wallace] being there,” he told rangers.co.uk.

“To be able to say you’ve even shared the same pitch as some of those players is great.”

McKay will now be hoping to continue his run in the Rangers first team next season.

The clubs is set for a big campaign as they return to the Scottish Premiership and challenge Celtic for the title.

He will be keen to play a big part in that, as he did in the promotion winning campaign last year and the experience he gains from his time with the Scotland squad will stand him in good stead.
