Old Trafford favourite recovers ahead of schedule.
Manchester United midfielder Darren Fletcher is set to make a surprise return to the Scotland team in their must win Euro 2012 qualifier against Liechtenstein.
Manager Craig Levein had ruled his skipper out with tonsillitis and the 27-year-old did not even travel with the squad to their Switzerland base.
“Darren will arrive today and I have not 100 per cent ruled him out of tomorrow,” Levein said this morning. “He feels better. He will do something on his own today.
“I have to wait to see him and assess him. If the medical team gives him the thumbs up he will play, if not he is certain to be involved on Tuesday (against Spain).”
Levein remains hopeful Kenny Miller will also be ready for the game but the boss insists he will not risk the Cardiff striker who is battling with a groin injury.
“Kenny is doing a little bit of training this morning and will hopefully get through that and train with the rest of the boys later,” Levein added.
“But I won’t take any silly risks. If he is fit he is fit, if he is not then he will not play. I am relaxed about it.
“I have spoken to Malky Mackay (Cardiff manager) about it and we are both on the same page. I am not in the business of risking players who have injuries.
“It doesn’t do me, Kenny or the club any good. But I am hopeful with Kenny because there has been a big improvement this week.
“I will until tomorrow before naming the team in all likelihood because I just want to see if he has any reaction to what he does today.
“Kenny is an important player for us and he knows he is an important player and I would like to have him available but we will see what the outcome is today.”
