Mulgrew makes Scotland squad

The defender has been called into Steve Clarke's squad for two upcoming Euro 2020 Qualifiers

27 August 2019

Defender Charlie Mulgrew has been named in Steve Clarke's squad for two of Scotland's upcoming Euro 2020 Qualifiers.

The 33-year-old centre back, who is currently on loan at Wigan Athletic, will earn caps number 42 and 43 should he feature against Russia and Belgium in early September.

Clarke's charges take on the Russians at Hampden Park on Friday 6th September before following that up with a bout against Roberto Martinez's Belgians three days later at the same venue.

Scotland have so far won two and lost two of their opening four games in Group I, and sit in fourth spot in the group.

An embarassing defeat in the opener at Kazakhstan was followed up with wins over San Marino and Cyprus, before defeat against Belgium in Brussels.

A brace from current Inter Milan hitman Romelu Lukaku got the hosts up and running, before Manchester City star Kevin De Bruyne completed the victory late on in the capital.

The full squad can be seen below:

Goalkeepers: Craig MacGillivray (Portsmouth), David Marshall (Wigan), Jon McLaughlin (Sunderland)

Defenders: Liam Cooper (Leeds United), Grant Hanley (Norwich), Charlie Mulgrew (Rovers, on loan at Wigan), Stephen O'Donnell (Kilmarnock), Liam Palmer (Sheffield Wednesday), Andrew Robertson (Liverpool), Greg Taylor (Kilmarnock)

Midfielders: Stuart Armstrong (Southampton), Ryan Christie (Celtic), Ryan Jack (Rangers), John McGinn (Aston Villa), Callum McGregor (Celtic), Kenny McLean (Norwich City), Robert Snodgrass (West Ham), Scott McTominay (Manchester United)

Forwards: James Forrest (Celtic), Ryan Fraser (Bournemouth), Oliver McBurnie (Sheffield United), Steven Naismith, Matt Phillips (West Brom) Johnny Russell (Sporting Kansas City)

Good luck, Charlie!
