Rhodes was brought on as a second half substitute for the second consecutive game as the Scots drew 1-1 with Macedonia, but he is happy to play second fiddle to Kenny Miller up front.
"I'm just very happy to be part of the squad," he told reporters.

"I'm just happy to be here and I'm enjoying every minute."
Rhodes was also keen to praise the Scotland fans for their calls for his introduction, and is keen to keep working hard for his country.
He added: "It's very flattering and it's a huge compliment to someone that's only 22-years-old and feel as if I've not really done too much in the game.
"I would have loved to have come on and rewarded them but it wasn't to be.
"I just tried to give my best and that's all you can do. I'll give it my best go and hopefully that will be good enough."
