I wonder how or what defines true Scottishness? Is it just that they were born in Scotland and that ensures their undying devotion to the cause? Of course not. There have been many Scots-born players to play for us who have let us down or quit the national team or just shown a rank bad attitude so being Scottish born is no guarantee of 100% commitment or desire to play for us.
I have a nephew born in England but brought up by his Scottish dad and he is a committed Scotland supporter who shows great devotion to our national team - perhaps a good deal more than Scots who couldn't give a toss about the national side. Scottishness you see cannot be just defined as because they are born here they are purely committed to our country and reverse can be said for those not born here who do end up playing for us.
Indeed I was 3 months way from being born in england but luckily enough my edinburgh born dad got transferred North just in time.
My English born wife whose maiden name is Mowatt thinks this it would be great if he was called up
