The games will mark a return action for the first time since February, where a 2-0 defeat to Portugal in February confirmed their failure to qualify for next year’s European Championships.

The Scottish FA have confirmed Stuart McLaren will be interim boss for both games. McLaren took charge of the side earlier in the year, overseeing a massive 10-0 win over Cyprus, before leading the team in the aforementioned defeat to Portugal in Larnaca.
