Angus Gunn has officially switched his international allegiances to Scotland as the Norwich City goalkeeper continues to be linked to Rangers.

In line with reports earlier in the week, Angus Gunn has been selected for the Scotland national team squad for the upcoming Euro qualifiers with Cyprus and Spain at Hampden.

Gunn, 27, joins up with the Scotland squad despite previously being a highly-rated prospect with the England U21s, earning twelve caps with the Young Lions.

Angus Gunn joins Rangers star Ryan Jack in the Scotland squad, with ex-Ibrox talents Nathan Patterson and Billy Gilmour also included.

Ex-Rangers stopper Liam Kelly will also be vying for the number one jersey, as will once Gers-linked Hearts goalie Zander Clark.

Now back at hometown Norwich City – his third stint with the Canaries – Southampton and Rangers sporting director Ross Wilson paid Man City a reported £13.5m [Sky Sports] to sign Angus Gunn in 2018.

Since then the player’s career has had its share of ups and downs and now Rangers have been extensively linked as a legitimate option come to the end of the season.

The goalkeeper position is the focus of much Ibrox debate and with Allan McGregor expected to hang up his gloves, and doubts over back-up stopper Jon McLaughlin, Angus Gunn is one of a number of goalies being linked.

The story was first broken by the Scottish Sun, who believe current club Norwich City will be expecting at least £3m to sign the goalkeeper in the summer window.

With Angus Gunn switching allegiances to Scotland, it comes at an interesting time amid those links to Rangers and let’s see if the stopper can be the long-term successor to both Allan McGregor and Craig Gordon at Hampden.

And maybe even the former at Ibrox.

Meanwhile, Ryan Jack has been reacting to his call-up to the Scotland national set-up.
