Brough, 30, pledged his allegiance back to the Scots after becoming unhappy of his treatment by England coach Steve McNamara.
He was originally persuaded by McNamara to switch allegiances but, after not
being selected for neither the Autumn internationals nor the Elite Training Squad, Brough turned his back on England yesterday.
McCormack said: “This is my 10th year with Scotland and ever since I took
over, Danny has showed a massive commitment to us.
“I’ve kept in regular touch with Danny and we spoke only last week.
“We haven’t picked the squad yet and we certainly haven’t chosen our captain but we want as many world-class players as we can and Danny fits that bill.”
