Familiarity breeds contentment as far as Scotland winger Gary Mackay-Steven is concerned.
The in-form Aberdeen player could have a starring role to play for the Scots in the two Nations League matches against Albania and Israel.
He is certainly relishing being right back in the mix at international level and is enjoying having a few friendly faces around.
Mackay-Steven not only has had Pittodrie teammates Scott McKenna, Graeme Shinnie and injury doubt Mike Devlin to keep him company this week but also an array of former colleagues from his time at Dundee United and Celtic.
He said: “I’m really happy to be part of the squad.
“It’s an easy one for me to come into.
“I have played alongside most of the boys and I am good mates with many of them.
“You even have Johnny Russell going back to my early days at Dundee United.
“I’m feeling good and scoring goals for Aberdeen.
“So it’s obviously a great opportunity for me coming here.
“I feel great at Aberdeen and enjoy the responsibility of being a player who can create and score goals.
“I feel comfortable and I’m just enjoying my football.
“I’m now looking to impress for Scotland.
“There are really good players here but you’ve got to have faith in your own ability.
“I’m thankful to get another opportunity.”
