PARS winger Paul McMullan has been rewarded for his fine run of form by being called up to the Scotland under-21 squad.

The on-loan Celtic player, 21, is one of 10 uncapped players selected by coach Scot Gemmill for this month’s international challenge match with Estonia at St Mirren’s Paisley 2021 Stadium.

He is one of three Hoops players – all of whom are out on loan apart from Liam Henderson – who has been drafted in to the 22-man pool which also includes Hearts full back Liam Smith, who is from Dalgety Bay and began his football journey with Inverkeithing Hillfield Swifts.

Since joining Dunfermline last summer, McMullan has become one of the first names on Allan Johnston’s teamsheet, making 31 appearances so far this season, scoring seven goals.

He has been capped for the national side at under-16, under-17 and under-19 level, winning a total of 14 caps.

Scotland face Estonia on Tuesday March 28 as part of their preparations for the UEFA European Under-21 Championship qualifying round ,which begins in September.
