Rovers skipper Charlie Mulgrew has been named in new manager Alex McLeish’s first Scotland squad.

The 32-year-old defender has been included in a 27-man squad for games against Costa Rica and Hungary.

Costa Rica visit Hampden Park on Friday March 23rd, before Scotland travel to Hungary for another friendly four days later.

Mulgrew, who has scored 12 goals from centre-back for Rovers this season, has 32 caps for his country and was a regular under former manager Gordon Strachan.

McLeish, who succeeded Strachan last month, is beginning his second spell in charge of the national team.

Scotland, who failed to qualify for this summer’s World Cup, will play two more friendlies at the end of the season, away to Peru on May 29th and Mexico on June 2nd.

Should Rovers have three or more players called up for international duty, then under EFL Policy, the club could request that the upcoming fixture with Doncaster Rovers, scheduled for Saturday March 24th, be postponed.

So far, defender Darragh Lenihan and Derrick Williams have been named in the Republic of Ireland’s provisional 30-man squad for their game against Turkey in Antalya on Friday March 23rd.
