Lee Wallace: Among six players to withdraw injured from Scotland squad

Lee Wallace: Among six players to withdraw injured from Scotland squad

Southampton's Fox and Wallace of Rangers - both left-backs - have been struggling with injuries and are the fifth and sixth players to withdraw from an initial 28-man squad.

Gordon Strachan had already called up Stevie Hammell as cover, and the Motherwell man is now in line to win his second cap in Zagreb.

Scott Brown and Gary Caldwell are among the other absentees, leaving Strachan with a decision to make over who captains the side, with James Morrison, Shaun Maloney and Allan McGregor the leading candidates.

Meanwhile, Scotland coach Scotland coach Stuart McCall issued positive fitness bulletins over defensive duo Grant Hanley and Gordon Greer.

McCall said: "Grant just rolled his ankle in training. It was just a precaution that he came off and got ice but he won't be a problem.

"Gordon Greer is coming up. He has had a little bit of tonsillitis but he will join up with the squad, as will Alan Hutton on Monday night."

McCall is confident Scotland will give a good account of themselves in Zagreb despite the lack of experience in the squad.

He added: "Everyone is looking fine and raring to go. We are just trying to formulate a system and a shape that will suit the players that we've got.

"We are under no illusions that Croatia is a difficult place to go. But we've got to go there with a game plan, where we can be difficult to play against."

The Scots have just two points from six Group A games and need two more from their remaining four matches to guarantee fourth-seeded status for the Euro 2016 qualifying tournament.

may well get slated by other United fans for this, but out of the three contenders, I'd far prefer Liverpool to win the title. Yes some elements of their fanbase can be a bit OTT, yes they're our biggest rivals and yes it will make our poor season feel even more like the end of an era (Fergie's gone, Liverpool are back on top). However I just have to applaud Brendan Rodgers and the way he's turned Liverpool around in just a couple of seasons. It...

ooray! We are all excited now, we beat a very mediocre team! With all due respect to WHU supporters, not winning that game shouldn't even be a consideration. This is the problem, there is no winning mentality at the Emirates - we're all congratulating ourselves beating a team that we have a winning record against.

s this meant to be an aspiration for United supporters? Moyes mediocrity strikes again. I see the Bayern boys don't want to sign for him, and his reputation amongst the senior European coaches make other key signings unlikely.
