Former Scotland international Alan Hutton believes Norwich City's Angus Gunn should be the man between the sticks when the Tartan Army travel to Germany for Euro 2024.

The Canaries goalkeeper is currently recovering from an injury sustained in last month's 3-2 loss to Leeds United at Carrow Road, but has played the majority of his country's successful qualification campaign for the tournament.

Hearts stopper Zander Clark played in Scotland's 2-2 draw with Georgia on Thursday but Hutton, who also played for Aston Villa and Tottenham Hotspur, believes Gunn is the man once he returns.

“I think Angus Gunn is the number one," Hutton said. "I think it was a problem situation. When you look at the goalkeepers of the past, Scotland had (Allan) McGregor, (Craig) Gordon and (former Canary David) Marshall, who were really experienced and you could rely on any one of them.

"So this situation was always going to come up in the end. Gunn has had an opportunity and has played seven games, six competitive and a friendly. He's done really well up until this stage. So I don't really see why he would not be seen as Scotland’s number one."

Hutton believes there's a chance for others to stake their claim during this week's international break, however, and that they'll be keen to do so.

“I still believe this is an opportunity for the less experienced keepers," he continued, speaking to OLBG. "After only seven caps, you can still go and prove yourself to be pushing Gunn all the way.

"It'll be interesting to see what Steve Clarke does, but there's an opportunity for whichever one Clarke chooses to shine and show the manager how good they are."
