Chris Powell can’t wait for England and Scotland to renew rivalries at Celtic Park tomorrow.
The old rivals clash for only the second time in 15 years, but the 112th overall in the challenge match.
After their 3-2 Wembley win in August 2013, England are seeking a 47th victory in a series which goes back to 1872.
Town’s football operations chief Ross Wilson, originally from Falkirk, will be in Glasgow as the Scots seek a 42nd success.
And Town manager Powell, who won five England caps, said: “In my opinion, it’s the best game either nation could have. To my mind, it’s up there with Brazil v Argentina or Gemany v Holland as one of the really big rivalries.
“It’s a massive match with an awful lot of history and I would like it to be played every year like it used to.
“I appreciate the calendar is busy, but there is surely a place for an annual meeting.”
Powell is expecting plenty of banter around Town’s PPG Canalside training base.
“We have a couple of patriotic Scots in our squad in Paul Dixon and Murray Wallace, and with Ross Wilson around as well, there’ plenty of talk going on.”
Left-back Dixon has three Scotland caps while centre-half Wallace has made four appearances for the Under 21s..
