Scotland call on Kenny.

Scotland boss Craig Brown is ready to ask Super Spy Kenny Dalglish to become a World Cup double agent.

Brown is banking on King Kenny to take on his new role as Rangers' Euro headhunter, so he can run the rule over Scotland's rivals as he trecks across the continent.

And the Scotland boss said: "I'm sure Kenny would help us out if he happened to be watching a game or players who are of interest to us.

"Just about every Scot is pro the national team and Kenny has helped me out in the past when I've asked his opinion on players.

"It's good news for everyone that he's on the verge of getting back into the game.

"Let's face it, Kenny has a terrific eye for a player - his knowledge of the game is immense.

"Just say Rangers sent him to watch Borussia Dortmund, then I'm sure he'd be happy to give me a run down on how Paul Lambert performed.

"Obviously his help would be very unofficial - his job will be to work for Rangers - but it could also give the national team a boost."

Meanwhile, Everton have ruled Duncan Ferguson out of Sunday's World Cup crunch against Sweden at Ibrox. And now Brown is sweating over the fitness of John Collins and Andy Goram.

Brown will make a call to France this morning to make sure Monaco ace Collins came through last night's showdown with Marseille unscathed.

And Goram could be sent home from Hampden today after doctors check his injured hip.

Brown said : "I'm keeping my fingers crossed that Collins will be OK and then we'll have to have a look at Goram.

"The good news is that Derek Whyte is feeling a lot better after suffering a slight knock against Newcastle.

"As for big Duncan, it's a blow but it's not a surprise. It's a problem because we don't get him but we have to get on with the job."
