Oliver Burke is also out, with James McArthur coming into the midfield.

McArthur scored Scotland’s late equaliser against Lithuania after replacing the injured Darren Fletcher at half-time.

The Scotland captain has recovered from a thigh knock that looked set to rule him out and takes his place in the starting line-up.

Scotland team: Marshall; Paterson, R Martin, Hanley, Tierney; D Fletcher, McArthur, Bannan, Ritchie, Snodgrass; S Fletcher.
