left-back Kieran Tierney will overlook Scotland’s opening Euro 2020 qualifying opener on Thursday with a stylish problem.

Tierney, 2-2, was expected to restore priest Andrew Robertson, that misses the match after having dental operation, but has not trained this past week.

midfielder Callum McGregor is currently captain Alex McLeish’s side.

’s Robertson may join the squad for Sunday’s match in San Marino, also Tierney may also be around.

Jordan Archer, Barry Bannan and Charlie Mulgrew dropped out prior to the squad’s passing, together with Liam Kelly and Stuart Findlay known as up.

Aberdeen captain Graeme Shinnie and uncapped Kilmarnock centre half Findlay could deputise in left-back, or manager McLeish can choose three central defenders.

But, potential wing back candidates Callum Paterson and Ryan Fraser will not be involved as a result of queries over the surface in Astana.
