squad for the games against Scotland and England in June.

Rooney had recently said: “I haven’t spoken to anyone about an international call-up and I don’t now if anyone watches the games. I just concentrate on doing my job for Aberdeen and if I can keep on scoring goals then you never know.
“I’m the same as everyone as it is a great honour to play for your country and I would love to do it at senior level.”
Celtic striker Anthony Stokes has also been called up for the double header in June.
