Hull City midfielder Robert Snodgrass is hopeful that he could play for Scotland next weekend despite picking up an injury on Saturday.
The winger started the evening kick-off against Manchester United but he was forced to limp out of the 1-0 defeat at the KCOM Stadium.
Snodgrass collided with the post at the start of the second half and he was unable to shake the knock off in the end.
He was replaced by fellow Scot Shaun Maloney and Snodgrass was on the sidelines when United’s Marcus Rashford tapped in the winning goal.
After the match there were fears his injury was more serious but the 28-year-old has assured fans he wants to play against Malta at the Ta’Qali Stadium next Sunday.
He wrote on Instagram:”Gutted had to go off, but in future I can’t tackle goalposts there is only one winner, and gutted for the lads they gave everything.
“See how the quad is over the next few days but hope to be ok for the international duty.”
