McKenna tore­turn for Scots qual­i­fiers

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

Aberdeen’ s Scott McKenna will re­turn to the Scot­land squad for this month’s fi­nal two Euro­pean Qual­i­fiers, it is un­der­stood.

The cen­tre-back has not played for Scot­land this sea­son be­cause of a ham­string in­jury but has now played the last five games for Aberdeen.

Man­ager Clarke will name his squad for the games against Cyprus and Kaza­khstan on Tues­day lunchtime.

McKenna will come back into what has been a prob­lem area for Clarke be­cause of in­juries. Five dif­fer­ent play­ers have lined up in cen­tral de­fence dur­ing his first six matches in charge and two are ex­pected to drop out of the squad.

Char­lie Mul­grew looks se t to drop out af­ter suf­fer­ing a ham­string in­jury while play­ing for Wigan while Kil­marnock’s Stu­art Find­lay (ham­string) is also likely to miss out.

But Leeds de­fender Liam Cooper re­turned to ac­tion af­ter in­jury over the past week.
