Now, the Coventry City defender has opened up about his future ambitions. Speaking to the Aberdeen Evening Express, Rose said that he wants to test himself at the highest level possible to boost his chances of getting into the Scotland squad. He said:

“Playing for Scotland is definitely something I am aiming to do. To play for your country I know you have to be playing at a high level and doing really well.

“There are a lot of good young centre-halves, especially in Scotland, playing at a high level. I just have to make sure I get myself ready for the Championship and put the performances in. Then hopefully one day that comes.”

Rose, 24, was a star performer for Mark Robins’ Coventry side last season. The centre-back played in 39 games across all competitions, scoring two goals and laying on two assists in his first season for the club.

Rose only signed from Scottish side Ayr United last summer but has been a big hit since joining. Formerly of the Aberdeen academy, Rose will now be looking to impress in the Championship to boost his chances of earning a place in the Scotland national side.
