ANDREW ROBERTSON has been ruled out of Scotland’s European Championships qualifier with Germany through injury.

The 20-year old Hull City defender was in contention to start at left-back against the world champions on Sunday.

The SFA announced the news via social media, later clarifying the injury as a calf strain.

The player himself then tweeted: “Gutted to be injured but hopefully back for west ham! Good luck to all the boys.”

Derby’s Craig Forsyth or Norwich defender Steven Whittaker will likely battle it out for the start at left-back.

It’s the second piece of bad news for Gordon Strachan within the last 24 hours after Christophe Berra dropped out of the squad through injury.
