Rhodes impresses for Scotland, but Miller still No1
Craig Levein says Kenny is first choice striker
SCOTLAND boss Craig Levein has told Jordan Rhodes he is still behind Kenny Miller in the pecking order despite impressing in their 3-1 win over Australia.
The Huddersfield striker marked his first start with his first senior goal for the national team at Easter Road.
Rhodes was given the nod to lead the line, with Miller rested for the friendly following his move to Vancouver Whitecaps.
But the veteran forward looks set to be back at the forefront of Levein’s plans for next month’s World Cup qualifiers against Serbia and Macedonia.
Levein said: “I would say just now that Kenny is the No1 striker at this minute.
“He has proven over a period of time that he can score goals on big occasions.
“We don’t have a great amount of strikers available so it was an ideal opportunity to see Jordan.
“After one game, he will still have to be a little bit patient.”
