Gary Caldwell Happy To Have Lasted

Gary Caldwell Happy To Have Lasted

Wigan Athletic club captain Gary Caldwell played for Scotland last night in their 1-0 loss to the Czech Republic despite having only 68 minutes of reserve team football under his belt in almost 6 months.

Caldwell had a double hip operation in the summer and hasn`t featured for the Latics since May 9th in the last game of last season away at Chelsea, a game that saw the former Celtic defender sent off.

Caldwell played from the start for the Scots in Prague and was part of manager Craig Levein`s ultra defensive formation that saw Caldwell play as a holding midfielder just in front of the two centre backs.

The 28 year old lasted until the 70th minute when he was sacrificed as Scotland threw caution to the wind and brought on two strikers in an attempt to rescue something from the game.

Caldwell though was delighted to have lasted for 2/3 of the game, he admitted that he was tired but said he was very happy to have lasted longer than what he thought he would himself.

Speaking to Sky Sports Caldwell said: 'I felt tired as the game wore on but I think that's only natural'

'But I gave it everything I had and the manager took me off probably after a little bit longer than I thought I would have lasted. I'm quite happy.'
