Burley has told Stephen McManus and Gary Caldwell they have already made the central defensive partnership their own.

Burley wants the the Celtic duo to lead Scotland to World Cup qualification.

Burley: "It's important we keep progressing, it's important we bring young players through.

"We've brought in young Darren Barr, Christophe Berra - two young centre-halves for the future.

"But Stephen McManus and Gary Caldwell have I feel established themselves as the centre-half pairing.

"I saw them on Sunday and they are playing regularly. Hopefully they'll be the sort of partnership McLeish and Miller were in the 80s.

"They do it for their club and hopefully they can do it for their country."
