Boruc – a veteran of some heated Old Firm battles in his five years in Glasgow – will also renew hostilities with ­ex-Rangers players Allan ­McGregor, Alan Hutton, Steven Whittaker, Charlie Adam, Chris Burke and Steven Naismith on 5 March in Warsaw.

Robert Lewandowski, ­however, will be the main ­attraction at Poland’s national stadium after the Borussia ­Dortmund superstar was selected to captain the squad. The 25-year-old has already netted 19 goals this term and will join ­European champions Bayern Munich in the close season.

Fellow Dortmund man ­Lukasz Piszczek will also be a threat to Gordon Strachan’s side, while he is joined by a number of ­Bundesliga regulars in an ­experienced squad.
