Rovers defender Charlie Mulgrew has been named in the Scotland squad for two upcoming friendly matches, both against South American opponents.

The 32-year-old has been included in Alex McLeish's squad for International Challenge games against Peru and Mexico, which will be played in the next few weeks.

The Scots face Peru in the early hours of Wednesday 30th May before taking on Mexico later on in the week in Mexico City on Sunday 3rd June.

A regular for Scotland, Mulgrew will be hoping to earn his 35th and 36th caps for his country over that week.

And he'll also be hoping to keep hold of the captain's armband having been skipper for his country in their last two outings, against Costa Rica and Hungary back in March.

The full squad is below:

Jordan Archer (Millwall), Allan McGregor (Hull City), Jon McLaughlin (Hearts), Barry Douglas (Wolves), Jack Hendry (Celtic), Scott McKenna (Aberdeen), Charlie Mulgrew (Rovers), Callum Paterson (Cardiff City), John Souttar (Hearts), Lewis Stevenson (Hibernian), Stuart Armstrong (Celtic), Ryan Fraser (AFC Bournemouth), Dylan McGeouch (Hibernian), John McGinn (Hibernian), Kenny McLean (Norwich), Scott McTominay (Manchester United, Jamie Murphy (Brighton & Hove Albion), Matt Richie (Newcastle United), Graeme Shinnie (Aberdeen), Ryan Christie (Celtic), Oliver McBurnie (Swansea City), Lewis Morgan (Celtic), Matt Phillips (West Bromwich Albion), Johnny Russell (Sporting Kansas City).

It could be a busy time for Rovers' players, with duo Darragh Lenihan and Derrick Williams both in the Republic of Ireland squad for three games this summer.

Good luck, Charlie.
