Southampton defender Danny Fox says that his return to the Scotland squad is down to how well Saints played last season.

Southampton defender Danny Fox has said that he is delighted to be given another chance with Scotland after earning his first international call-up in three years.

Fox has been drafted into Craig Levein's squad for next week's friendly against Australia as cover for missing Rangers defender Lee Wallace.

The 26-year-old told Saints' official website: "I'd put international football to the back of my mind having not been called up for so long, but it's nice.

"It's a compliment to me and a compliment to the staff, the manager and the players that I'm playing with because my form has reflected how we've done as a team.

"Southampton is my bread-and-butter so that comes before anything else, but this is an honour and is something I want to take with both hands."

Fox has one Scotland cap to his name, earned in a 3-0 friendly defeat against Wales in 2009.
