Che Adams called up, but no place for Celtic star in Scotland squad

1 min read

Steve Clarke announced his squad for the upcoming internationals this afternoon, with Southampton’s Che Adams finally committing to the Tartan Army.

The 24-year-old had initially knocked back approaches in favour of representing his country of birth, England, but it now appears a pitch from the Scotland manager tempted him to play his international football in dark blue.

Many Scotland fans, however, were disappointed to see Celtic midfielder David Turnbull miss out.

The youngster has been in impressive form for the Glasgow side, with many feeling he has more than earned an opportunity to step up from the Under-21s.

Elsewhere, there’s a debut call-up for Hibernian’s Kevin Nisbet.

The former Dunfermline striker has scored twelve times this season, and along with Adams will replace Lawrence Shankland, Leigh Griffiths, Callum Paterson and Oliver Burke as the forward options.

Jack Hendry, who has spent the season on loan in Belgium, is recalled to the squad after a successful campaign, whilst Leeds United defender Liam Cooper drops out with injury.

Scotland squad in full:

Marshall, Gordon, McLaughlin

Robertson, Tierney, Gallagher, McKenna, O’Donnell, Palmer, Hanley, Hendry, Considine, Taylor

Christie, McGinn, McGregor, Armstrong, McTominay, McLean, Jack, Fleck

Adams, Dykes, McBurnie, Fraser, Nisbet
