Scotland boss Burley wants Argentina friendly

Scotland boss George Burley has asked the Tartan Army to dig deep to fund a proposed friendly against Argentina.

The SFA have been in talks over a Hampden clash against the South Americans in November and asked Scotland fans for their views on paying increased entry fees.

Supporters would be expected to pay around £40-50 for the privilege and SFA chief executive Gordon Smith has admitted negative feedback could force them to scrap the plan.

But Burley wants the chance to test his side against the likes of Carlos Tevez and Lionel Messi.

He told the Daily Record: 'When you go to other countries it costs a lot of money to watch football these days and it was an idea to try to bring one of the best teams in the world such as Argentina to Hampden.

'The idea is not dead in the water yet and negotiations are still ongoing. We would like this game to go ahead.

'For me it will it will be an interesting and worthwhile exercise should we pull this off.

'The opportunity to play a glamour match like this against such illustrious opponents doesn't come around that often.'
