Gordon Strachan has reshuffled his pack ahead of Scotland’s clash with Euro 2016 hosts France on Saturday night.

Barry Bannan and Christophe Berra have withdrawn from the game in Metz, according to the SFA twitter account. No reasons were given.

Joining the squad are Hull City’s Shaun Maloney, Robert Snodgrass and Andrew Robertson.

The Hull trio were involved in the English Championship play-off final against Sheffield Wednesday last weekend.

Steve Bruce’s side won 1-0 to seal their return to the Premier League.

The Hull contingent missed Scotland’s defeat by Italy in Malta on Sunday as a result of the play-offs.
