FRONTMAN Che Adams revealed there had been plenty of banter flying around about his Scotland selection and said: “Everyone at Southampton calls me McAdams!”

Ralph Hasenhuttl revealed the striker’s new moniker to the media back in April, after he had netted his first international goal against the Faroe Islands.

Adams qualified to represent the Scots through a maternal grandparent, having previously represented England’s under-20s.

He also reportedly turned down an opportunity to play for Antigua & Barbuda.

But now with two goals in four international games for the Scots, Leicester-born Adams is a key figure of the Tartan Army’s Euro 2020 plans.

He told the Daily Record: “There’s been plenty of banter going around. Everyone at Southampton calls me McAdams!

“I get it every day!

“When I came to my first camp the boys told me to do my first interview in a Scottish accent, which was quite funny.

“It’s part and parcel in dressing rooms and you need that.”

Scotland famously qualified for this month’s tournament after beating Serbia on penalties in a play-off back in November.

Goalkeeper David Marshall was the hero that evening with the experienced stopper leading a post-match conga during the celebrations in the aftermath.

And it was moments like that which fuelled Adams’s desire to join Steve Clarke’s side.

“I watched the videos of all the lads celebrating, the clips of Marshy and so on and how good it looked. I was so happy for all the people involved and I want to be a part of it,” he added.

“I have had a look on YouTube and the lads speak so much about it. The Scotland-England game was on the other day and everyone sat around the table and just wanted to enjoy the moment and make it happen again.”

Scotland kick off their Euro 2020 Group D campaign against Czech Republic at Hampden Park on Monday (2pm).

They then take on England on Friday, June 18 (8pm) before a clash with Croatia to round off their group fixtures on June 22.
