In a season and a half at Celtic the centre half scored only one goal- against Marseilles- but after scoring for Scotland’s u-21 side against Luxembourg he has a taste for hitting the back of the net.

Loan spells at Kilmarnock and Dundee have given Toshney valuable first team experience as well as the chance to establish himself in the Scotland set up.

“I should have had a hat-trick,” he said after scoring against Luxembourg. “The keeper has made an absolute ‘worldy’ of a save when I tried to curl a right-foot shot.

“Then the second chance I had, Clarky flicked it on and I was in two minds whether to head it or go with my foot and ended up missing it completely.

“But I managed to get on the scoresheet at the end so I’m happy.

“I’m not really known for my goalscoring to be honest – but I should probably get more than I do because I seem to get a lot of chances.

“I’ve only scored once for Dundee this year, that was against Morton in the Scottish Cup.

“It’s up to me to take these chances when I get them. I have got a presence about me in the box and I’ve just got to make sure I get in about it when the ball is put in there.”

Tony Watt was also on target for Scotland’s u-21 side with team mate Dylan McGeough also pulling on the dark blue.
