Southampton key star set for injury return, provides. . .

Ross Stewart is anticipated to provide Scotland with a wildcard for Euro 2024.

The Southampton striker has been sidelined since November with a major muscular injury, and his season was assumed to be over.

However, it may not be the case.

Stewart has had numerous hurdles since moving down south from Ross County four years ago. However, when the 27-year-old was fit, he shown his ability to score on a regular basis.

He scored 40 goals in 81 Sunderland appearances before joining St Mary’s for £8 million on deadline day last summer.

And now Saints head coach Russell Martin is desperate to get Stewart fit and ready for the English Championship play-offs.

If the talisman can impress between now and the season’s end, he may even be on Scotland manager Steve Clarke’s mind when it was announced that each nation will be permitted to invite 26 players to this summer’s Euros.

Martin commented on Stewart’s return to full health ahead of Saturday’s home league match against Stoke City, saying: “Yeah, all being well, Ross will be on the bench next week against Leeds. Hopefully, fingers crossed, he’s come through training well.

“He’ll have a hard practice in the morning and then recover on Sunday. He will then be completely integrated into the squad by next week. So, if all goes well, we look forward to having Ross on the team.”

Stewart, who has two caps, might fight alongside Southampton colleague Che Adams, as well as Lyndon Dykes, Lawrence Shankland, and Jacob Brown, for the chance to represent Scotland in a big tournament. Or at least get some playing time during the international friendly against Finland and Gibraltar in early June.
