arry Ferguson says his return to the Scotland team would have been too much of a distraction ahead of the dates with Czech Republic and Spain.[LNB] Any hopes of a comeback following his acrimonious exit from the national squad last year were ended yesterday when the Scottish Football Association confirmed there would be no return.[LNB]The 32-year-old is keen to focus on his club career with Birmingham but also expressed fears over a media frenzy if he did play for Scotland again.[LNB]He told the Daily Record: "It has not been an easy decision for me to make but I feel I have done the right thing.[LNB]"There was a danger that, by returning now, I would have started a media frenzy and it would have been a distraction for the rest of the boys and the manager. That would not have helped anybody.[LNB]"Yes, it is hard to say no to Scotland because it hurts not to be involved with the national team. But I believe in fate and things happen for a reason.[LNB]"I want to enjoy my time here [at Birmingham] but I wish Scotland all the best."[LNB]
