DEFENDER Gary MacKenzie’s great start to the season has earned him the reward of a call up to his national side.

The 26-year-old has joined up with Craig Levein’s Scotland squad as they kick off their World Cup 2014 qualifying campaign againt Serbia and FYR Macedonia at Hampden Park.

However, his call up means he will miss Dons’ League 1 clash against Walsall on Saturday.

It is not the first time MacKenzie has received the call from Scotland, last year he joined the squad for a friendly in Cyprus but failed to make an appearance as illness struck during the trip.
