Scott McTominay has missed out on out on selection for Scotlands upcoming World Cup qualifiers but captain Andy Robertson and Kieran Tierney are both included in Steve Clarkes squad.McTominay got an injury following Manchester Uniteds Premier League opener against Leeds which avoided him from starting in their 1-1 draw at Southampton on Saturday.
The 24-year-old came off the bench in the final stages at St Marys but the issue has actually ruled him out of contention for Scotlands upcoming qualifiers versus Denmark, Moldova and Austria.Robertson – who signed a new deal with Liverpool on Tuesday – suffered ankle ligament damage in a pre-season friendly versus Athletic Bilbao on August 9 but made a quick recovery to feature on the Reds bench for their very first 2 Premier League games.Tierney suffered from cramps in his thigh during Toolboxs 2-0 defeat to Chelsea on Sunday but has already returned to complete training with the Gunners and will be available for choice.
