The Scotland national team has hugely benefited over the last five years from the emergence of some talented young players who are now excelling for club and country.
Kieran Tierney, Scott McTominay and Andrew Robertson are all examples of what can be achieved by young Scottish youngsters, if they have the talent and are willing to work hard.
Here is a look at three players who may well be the future stars of the Scottish senior team if they continue to develop in their careers.
Rangers youngster Kai Kennedy was recently called up to the Scotland under-19 team and it may not be long before he is fast-tracked through the different levels.
The 18-year-old made his debut for the Gers back in January when he came off the bench in their Scottish Cup tie with Stranraer. A number of clubs in the Premier League are thought to be monitoring Kennedy, including Sheffield United as they see a lot of potential in the Scot.
18-year-old Andy Winter had a dream debut for Hamilton earlier this year, scoring in his side’s 5-0 victory over Edinburgh City in the Scottish Cup. Winter has since featured for the Accies in the Scottish Premiership and is a player that Hamilton boss Brian Rice likes a lot.
The Scottish youngster is a forward who works very hard on the pitch. He has scored goals at every level he has played at. If he continues that trend in the Scottish Premiership, he could be set for big things.
Scotland have had some great forwards over the years and Winter may well be the next in line to shine for the senior team.
Good luck to all of the above three players as they strive to have a successful career in the game.
