Scotland: 'This Is The Best Spell Of My Career'

Top scorer Jason Scotland turned 30 on Wednesday, and says he's playing the best football of his career.

Despite becoming 30 years of age this week, Scotland says he's in his prime and is looking to play for many more years to come.

Fellow countryman Dwight Yorke, a Champions League winner with Manchester United, is still playing at the age of 38 and Scotland says he's an excellent role model.

Scotland told the Evening Post:

'I'd like to think I am in my prime,'

'My kids are calling me old and the lads in the dressing room have been giving me plenty of stick, but I just have to keep going and keep working hard.

'Hopefully, I'll be able to carry on doing the business at 30.

'I would like to go on playing for as long as I can and that means trying to stay as fit as I can.

'Dwight Yorke is a good role model for players from Trinidad & Tobago, and I'd like to do something similar to him.'


Scotland also added he's looking at getting back to his goalscoring ways after failing to hit the net on Tuesday.

'It would be nice to get back up to 14 (goals) in 14 (games).'
