Nottingham Forest have some decent young talent on the books currently, with Ben Osborn, Jorge Grant and Dimitar Evtimov all in the first-team.

Scotland manager Gordon Strachan has been speaking highly of Nottingham Forest winger Oliver Burke.

The talented winger recently received his first call-up to the Scotland national team and has had a great season with the Forest in the Championship.

Speaking to The Sun Scotland boss Strachan made it clear that Burke will be getting a chance to shine in the upcoming qualifying campaign for the World Cup in 2018:

“There’s no age barrier, whether you are 19 like Oliver Burke, or 35 like Gordon Greer.

“If you can pass the ball, have intelligence and have an impact on a game of football, you are in.

“I don’t look at age. I get as much enjoyment watching Burke and Barrie McKay as watching Gordon.

“I was there when Paul McStay played for Scotland at 17. Good enough? Bang — get in the team. Don’t hold them back.”

Burke has had a breakthrough campaign with Forest. He played 21 times for the club this season and he also managed to score his first goal for the club, eventually scoring twice last season.

The wide man, who made his Scotland debut against Denmark in March, has shown himself to be one of the best young players outside the Premier League and at just 19-years-old he has plenty to offer the club going forward.

Direct, fast and physically imposing he will be hoping to add to his Scotland caps going forward into the future.
