The 22-year-old, above, is set to be joined in the squad by recent Scotland first choice keeper David Marshall, who has just completed a move to Derby County, and Jon McLaughlin, currently holding down the No 1 position at Rangers after a summer switch from Sunderland.

Scotland face Israel at Hampden on 4 September before playing the Czechs in Olomouc three days later. It is the start of their Nations League Group 2B campaign which also offers a potential play-off spot for the 2022 World Cup Finals in Qatar.
