John Souttar and Kevin Nisbet have been called up to Scotland’s squad for next month’s Euro 2024 qualifiers against Norway and Georgia.
Souttar returns to the squad for the first time in a year, while Nisbet has not played for his country since 2021.
The Hibernian striker is back in the squad having scored 12 goals in 19 Premiership games following his return from a serious knee injury, while Souttar has made regular appearances at Rangers after recovering from a long-term ankle problem.
The pair takes the places of Grant Hanley and Che Adams, with both players absent due to injury.
However, there are calls for Jack Hendry, the Club Brugge defender who missed the final squad due to injury, and Lawrence Shankland, who has scored 26 goals for Hearts this season.
They are joined in Steve Clarke’s side by Angus Gunn, the Norwich goalkeeper who made his debut earlier this year, and Dominic Hyam, the Blackburn defender who has yet to earn his first cap but was benched for the March internationals.
Scotland will play Norway in Oslo on June 17 and Georgia at Hampden Park on June 20.
Clarke’s side started their campaign to reach next summer’s Euro 2024 final in impressive fashion, with victories over Cyprus and Spain.
