The defender missed the country’s Euro 2020 defeat to Czech Republic at Hampden Park on Monday.

However, there was positive news as he was involved in training today [Tuesday], pictured warming up beside team-mates.

"He did a little bit of light training and we will just see how he progresses,” Clarke confirmed.

"He's got a chance."

Tierney’s absence was felt in the centre of defence having emerged as one of the team's key players, both in a defensive and attacking sense, with Clarke admitting it changed the "dynamic”.

The long wait for Scotland to play a tournament match proved to be an anti-climax as the team passed up a number of chances on the way to going down to a double from Czech ace Patrik Schick.
