Sunderland striker Ross Stewart made his long awaited Scotland debut in the nation's 2-0 victory over Armenia last night, June 8.

The attacker, who recently scored in his club's sides League One playoff final victory, came on with four minutes remaining in the fixture.

Stewart has been involved with the squad once before, receiving his first call up to Steve Clarke's squad in March of this year.

Though he will now get his hands on that illusive cap after he ran out in front of the near 40,000 crowd at Hampden Park.

Speaking after the match, Stewart said: "It felt very surreal, obvioulsy a really proud moment, delighted to get my debut.

"To do it in a game that's got importance on it, and a game that we went on to win, makes it even better."

It truly has been a whirlwind few years for Stewart, who began his senior football with Ardeer Thistle aged just 17.

The striker was congratulated on Twitter by current Ardeer manager Sean Kenney.

He said: "Superb big man! Everyone at Ardeer Thistle FC very proud. Many more to come."

From the the Stevenston side, he moved to Kilwinning Rangers in 2015 where his goalscoring record earned him a move to Albion Rovers, a move that it is reported his dad helped finance.

The Buffs were also quick to congratulate the Scotland star.

Thay said: "See what you can do with the right attitude. Well done Ross, a proud moment for North Ayrshire football."

After stints with St. Mirren and Alloa, Stewart found a home at Ross County, and earned himself his move south, to Sunderland, where he has scored 26 goals in all competitions this season.

Stewart will now look to kick on, and add to his first appearance, as Scotland travel to face The Republic of Ireland in Dublin on Saturday, June 11 at 5pm.
