Scotland forward Robert Snodgrass is targeting September’s crucial clashes with Georgia and Germany for his Dark Blues comeback.

The Hull forward has missed the last six months of action after dislocating his knee cap on his Tigers debut last August.

He is now battling his way back to fitness but faces a long struggle before he can resume playing duties. However, the 27-year-old has already circled the trip to Tbilisi on September 4, followed by the visit of Joachim Loew’s world champions to Hampden three days later, for his international comeback.

The Euro 2016 qualifiers could prove vital as Gordon Strachan’s side aim to clinch a place at the finals in France and Snodgrass is determined to play his part.

The former Livingston, Leeds and Norwich winger said: “My aim is to try and get back for next season. It’s up to myself to try and do that.

“But I’d love to be involved with Scotland for the September games. That is a date I’ve got noted in the back of my head. But I can’t look too much at that because the first thing I need to do is get fit.”
