Scot­land call-up for Kil­lie de­fender Findlay

The Press and Journal (Aberdeen and Aberdeenshire) - - SPORT -

Stu­art Findlay has been called into the Scot­land squad fol­low­ing an in­jury blow for Liam Cooper.

The Leeds cen­tre­back was ruled out for up to six weeks af­ter suf­fer­ing a groin in­jury dur­ing his team’s vic­tory over West Brom on Tues­day, hours af­ter Steve Clarke named his lat­est squad.

Clarke has gone back to for­mer club Kil­marnock to se­lect Findlay for the up­com­ing Euro­pean Cham­pi­onship qual­i­fiers against Rus­sia and San Marino. The news was an­nounced on the Scot­land Na­tional Team Twit­ter ac­count.

Findlay is yet to win a full cap but the 24-year-old has pre­vi­ously been in­volved in squads and played 35 times across the un­der-age na­tional teams.

Cooper started both de­feats against Rus­sia and Bel­gium last month along­side Char­lie Mul­grew.

Nor­wich City’s Grant Han­ley, who has not played since Au­gust 24, and Aberdeen’s Mikey Devlin are the other cen­tre-backs in the squad.

Aberdeen de­fender Scott McKenna and Hearts de­fender John Sout­tar have both been miss­ing through in­jury in re­cent weeks.
