Barnsley Striker Gets Scotland Call

Oli McBurnie has been called up by Scotland manager Alex McLeish for the coming international break.

The next break of the 2017/18 campaign sees Scotland host Costa Rica at Hampden Park on March 23 with a second friendly arranged in Hungary four days later.

McLeish is beginning his second spell as his country's international gaffer following the departure of Gordon Strachan and he's certainly rung the changes to stamp his authority on the side with six new faces in the group.

Swansea's Oli McBurnie, Hibernian's Dylan McGeouch and Wolves' Barry Douglas are joined by Hearts' Jon McLaughlin and Aberdeen's Scott McKenna with Manchester United youngster Scott McTominay already confirmed as being involved before the announcement earlier this afternoon.

There are a number of other changes.

Full squad:

Jordan Archer (Millwall), Allan McGregor (Hull City) Jon McLaughlin (Hearts).

Barry Douglas (Wolves), Grant Hanley (Norwich), Russell Martin (Norwich, on loan at Rangers), Scott McKenna (Aberdeen), Charlie Mulgrew (Blackburn), Callum Paterson (Cardiff), Andrew Robertson (Liverpool), Kieran Tierney (Celtic).

Stuart Armstrong (Celtic), James Forrest (Celtic), Tom Cairney (Fulham), Ryan Fraser (Bournemouth), Kevin McDonald (Fulham), Kenny McLean (Aberdeen), Dylan McGeouch (Hibernian), John McGinn (Hibernian), Callum McGregor (Celtic), Scott McTominay (Manchester United), Jamie Murphy (Brighton, on loan at Rangers), Matt Ritchie (Newcastle), Ryan Christie (Celtic, on loan at Aberdeen).
