Hearts midfielder Ryan Stevenson says he hasn’t given up on playing for Scotland after returning to Tynecastle.
The 28-year-old was named in the squad to play Cyprus last November but didn’t make it off the bench. Stevenson moved to back to the Edinburgh club last month after failing to settle at Ipswich Town.
And he feels he can catch Craig Levein’s attention again if he can emulate the form he showed in his first spell with the capital club.
He told The Sun: “There’s no reason why, if I play well for Hearts first and foremost, I can’t force my way back in if Craig Levein comes to watch.
“You look at Andy Webster, he is away this week, and he got the chance because he has been magnificent since he came back to Hearts.
“He had been out of it and managed to get back in the squad. I said when I first joined this club that I came to Hearts because I wanted to win things and it is the same again.”
