Scott McTominay has returned to Scotland’s squad for their crucial World Cup qualifiers with Israel and the Faroe Islands.

The Manchester United midfielder needed groin surgery last month which forced him to miss the wins against Moldova and Austria.

He returned for United’s 2-1 win at West Ham and also started Saturday’s 1-0 defeat to Aston Villa.

Southampton’s Stuart Armstrong is also in the squad having pulled out through injury ahead of September’s 2-0 loss to Denmark.

Rangers goalkeeper Jon McLaughlin replaces Zander Clark in Steve Clarke’s squad and Callum McGregor is also included despite missing Celtic’s last four games through injury. Club team-mates James Forrest and Greg Taylor miss out due to injury.
