Steven Caldwell won his last Scotland cap against Switzerland in March 2006 when he came on as a substitute and he has made a total of nine appearances for his country.
He may have thought at the age of 28 with a gap of over three years out of the Scotland squad that his International career could have been over.
The news today though is that Caldwell is back in contention for a place in the Scotland team having been named in the squad for the World Cup qualifier against Norway in Oslo on Wednesday, August 12. If he plays for Scotland, this will be his first time as a Clarets player.
He will also be joined by his Clarets teammates,Steven Fletcher and Graham Alexander who have also been drafted into the squad by Scotland manager,George Burley.
The strong Scottish connection at Burnley these days is plain for all to see and there is yet further good news on the Scotland International front.
Alex MacDonald currently out on loan with Falkirk will be on Scottish Under 21 duty at their training camp in Scotland next week and will be joined by Kevin MacDonald and new signing, Brian Easton.
The Clarets will also be without Martin Paterson next week. He has been called-up for Northern Ireland's international friendly against Norway at Windsor Park on Wednesday, August 12. Hopefully his tight hamstring injury will have fully recovered by then.
Although this is obviously good news for the players, it does now mean that six of our squad will now be absent from Turf Moor next week and so will miss the final club preparations for our first ever season in the Barclays Premier League.
Our first match is of course away to Stoke City at the Britannia Stadium on Saturday August 15th (3pm KO)
