was he capped for Scotland

He wasn't capped by the full international side AFAIK, nor can I see that he played for the Scottish League side or wartime internationals. He did play for Hibs, Leith Athletic, Coventry, Bonnyrigg Rose, St Bernards and Forfar Athletic

It's a possibility he played for another Scottish Select side - maybe the junior team. Any further info on that would be interesting.
