Rangers winger David Templeton won't let thoughts of international football distract him from club commitments despite the appointment of a new Scotland coach.

The Ibrox club have had to start life over in the Irn-Bru Third Division, a scenario that Gordon Strachan's predecessor, Craig Levein, reckoned made it impossible to select Rangers players for international duty.

Templeton has had a decent start to his Ibrox career but won't be distracted by the change at Hampden.

"I think if you're playing well it's up to them to pick you," said Templeton.

"If you look at Lee Wallace, he's unbelievable. He's one of the best players I have ever played with. I don't know why he wasn't getting picked before and after he came here to Rangers.

"Hopefully he will get his chance because he's a fantastic player and he would benefit Scotland.

"It has never really bothered me, to be fair. When I was at Hearts and playing well I never ever got a chance.

"And once that happened I just concentrated on club football. It's still the same. If anything happens it would be a bonus but if not I'm not too fussed. I've still got plenty of time to get there.

"I don't know him [Strachan at all but he seems like a good manager. Being a winger might help me if he likes his wingers."

Meanwhile, Templeton has also insisted that he is at Rangers for the long haul.

Recent reconstruction talks have been slammed by the Ibrox outfit but Templeton has insisted that no-one at the club is looking for a fast pass back to the top.

"I knew it would be three promotions and I signed for four years here," he said.

"I knew if I did that I'd still have another year if we got back to the SPL and then I would be able to play for a new contract at that time and try and get back to the Champions League with Rangers, that was my whole thinking of it.

"So for me it was always the thought of three promotions and that's the way hopefully it will stay."
