Ferguson has no fears as France clash looms

Scotland skipper Barry Ferguson will not be fazed by the reputations of his illustrious French opponents in the Parc des Princes on Wednesday night.

The Rangers midfielder will return to Alex McLeish's side after missing yesterday's 3-1 Euro 2008 qualifying win over Lithuania through suspension.

And he has vowed to show the likes of Patrick Vieira and Claude Makelele that he fears no-one.

'If you want to play at the highest level these players are the guys you want to play against,' said Ferguson. 'Top-quality players. But they're just names, you shouldn't bother about names. I don't. I guess most of our boys won't either.

'You're coming up against another guy on a park and I think sometimes you can respect a guy too much. I give them respect for what they've done in the game but once I cross that white line I don't care who he is.'

While the 29-year-old will cast the reputations of his opponents out of his mind, he doubts whether the French will even know the names of the Scotland players.

That is despite Scotland's 1-0 triumph over Les Bleus last year, which prompted coach Raymond Domenech to accuse the Hampden ball boys of time-wasting.

'They probably don't mention any of us,' Ferguson said. 'That's the arrogance about them, they probably don't know who we are.

'In the second half of that game at Hampden we showed them that we can be a good team.

'Complaining about the ball boys summed them up. That was laughable.'
