Ferguson Turns Down Scotland.

Ferguson Turns Down Scotland.



Birmingham City`s Barry Ferguson has told Scotland boss Craig Levein he will not be making a comeback in the Scotland side.

Ferguson was booted out of the international scene by former Scotland boss George Burley, but has recently been given a chance to come back by new Scotland boss Craig Levein.

Levein had been waiting some time for Ferguson to make up his mind about the situation, but he was left disappointed after a meeting with Ferguson last night.

Levein said: 'I am naturally disappointed not to call on Barry's abilities and experience for the Euro 2012 qualification campaign, but I understand his reasons.

'The arrangement was that Barry would have the summer to decide.

'Birmingham returned to pre-season training yesterday and when we spoke last night, he said that both family commitments and his commitment to Birmingham City were the priorities in his life at the moment.

'I wish him the best of luck and we now move on with our preparations for the qualification campaign, starting with the friendly against Sweden next month.'
