Thank you for giving me the opportunity to live my childhood dream, its been such a special sense pulling that Scotland jersey as I was 16 years old. Snodgrass wrote on Instagram.
Theres been lots of highs during my international career that I will always remember with fondness, for example my debut against Northern Ireland, winning two global player of the year awards, along with my hat-trick at Malta.
Its now the correct time for me to step aside though and retire from the Scotland national group and let the boys along with younger players choose my place and push the squad forward.
I want to specially thank the Tartan Army to the exceptional support you have showed me over the years. I wont ever forget that.
A massive thank you also goes to everyone in the SFA for looking after me since I was a young boy, including Frank Reilly, Doc McLean, Jonesy, managers, trainers, team, the physios, massage therapists, and apparel guys and the media personnel Ive worked with over the years.
I will now see as a lover and I hope to see us play in a major tournament again soon — hands crossed the boys do it come March!
