Aaron Hickey a doubt for Scotland as Steve Clarke makes admission on captaincy

Aaron Hickey could be denied a maiden Scotland cap against Poland on Thursday with the Bologna defender rated doubtful for the friendly match at Hampden.

The 19-year-old left-back is unwell and unlikely to be deemed fit enough start the game having received his first call-up for the national side following an impressive campaign in Serie A which has included scoring four goals.

Andy Robertson and Lyndon Dykes have also been ruled out for the fixture that has replaced the delayed World Cup play-off sem-final against Ukraine.
