Kris Boyd has been called into the Scotland squad for the first time in three years ahead of Tuesday’s friendly meeting with Norway in Molde.

The 30-year-old Kilmarnock striker, who has also played for Rangers and Middlesbrough, last appeared for the Dark Blues in a 2-1 European Championship qualifying victory over Liechtenstein at Hampden in September 2010.

Boyd’s recall follows Scotland manager Gordon Strachan’s decision to allow Sunderland striker Steven Fletcher, Celtic midfielder Charlie Mulgrew and Blackburn defender Grant Hanley to return to their respective clubs following Friday night’s goalless draw against the United States.
