Stevie May may have missed out on his first Scotland cap during the latest round of Euro 2016 qualifiers but Stuart Gray says it is only a matter of time before the Owls striker makes a senior appearance for his country.

On his first senior call-up, May was an unused sub as Scotland earned a win and a draw against Georgia and Poland respectively during the current international break.

After witnessing May in close quarters following his August arrival, Gray expects the 21-year-old to be given a run out soon.

And he hopes it will mark a regular run in Gordon Strachan’s side for May.

“It will come for him”, Gray said. “I know with the quality he’s got that he will break into the Scotland side.

“The call-up he’s had, it’ll give him the confidence and once he plays, it’ll give him even more.

“It’s probably the pinnacle of your career to represent your country.

“But when it comes for Stevie, we don’t want it to be one cap, we want it to be several.

“That’ll show he’s in good form for Sheffield Wednesday and that he’s scoring goals.

“It’ll show that Gordon Strachan has the same faith in him that I do.”
