Bardo For Scotland

Bardsley, who qualifies for Scotland as he was born in England but his Father was born in Glasgow, will be excited by this call up as his season goes from strength to strength.


Bardo is currently training with the Scottish team as they face a double header of games against Czech Republic and an even trickier tie against the World Cup holders Spain.


Bardsley spoke to The Mirror in January about this event occuring: 'If they want me they know where I am. They can get my phone number and ask me. I am English but if another country wanted me to play for them I would be happy to listen. They should contact me.

'My dad was born in Glasgow. He wasn`t up there long, but he was born there. Despite that, my dad has never said anything. He is not pushy. He just said you make the decision.

'The only time it has really come up was when Sir Alex locked me in a room with Walter Smith when I was 18, which was a bit scary.

'I was only young and it was a big commitment and I decided to keep my options open at the time. But I haven`t played for England so you never know.'

Bardsley has been playing left back for Sunderland in the past two games due to Kieron Richardson being injured.

Hopefully he can get a start for Craig Levein's men and cement his place in the squad in the future.

Good luck Bardo!
