Niall McGinn is confident fellow Aberdeen winger Gary Mackay-Steven can shine for Scotland if given an opportunity in the UEFA Nations League.
Mackay-Steven was selected by national boss Alex McLeish for the ties with Albania and Israel.
The Scots face Albania away on Saturday before playing Israel at Hampden on Tuesday.
Mackay-Steven, pictured, earned his second cap when coming on as a substitute in the 3-1 friendly loss to Portugal at Hampden last month.
The 28-year-old set up a late consolation goal for Steven Naismith with a superb back-heel.
It was his first cap since a debut in November 2013 when coming off the bench in a goal-less friendly draw against the United States at Hampden.
Winger Mackay-Steven met up with the Scotland squad on a high having scored a superb goal in the 1-0 Premiership defeat of Hibs at Pittodrie on Friday.
McGinn said: “Gary has been brilliant.
“He showed when he came on against Portugal what he could do when he got the assist.
“There is no reason why he can’t kick on for Scotland. He is champing at the bit, and why can’t he play on that stage?
“We know how good he is for Aberdeen and hopefully he gets his breakthrough with the Scotland team now.
“We are winning games and that will help his confidence.
“He is a really enjoyable player for the fans to watch, and for us to have in the team, because we know he will always create.
“We also know he can step up and score goals like he did against Hibs.
“For a fellow winger, it is great to have Gary on the other side.”
