Manager Gordon Strachan has called up eight uncapped players including former Celtic striker Tony Watt ahead of Scotland's friendly internationals against the Czech Republic and Denmark later this month.

Watt, on loan at Blackburn from Charlton, is included despite often being overlooked for the Scotland Under-21 squad.

The other uncapped call-ups are Dundee goalkeeper Scott Bain, Wolves midfielder Kevin McDonald, Aberdeen's Kenny McLean, Leeds defender Liam Cooper, Celtic left-back Kieran Tierney, Hibernian midfielder John McGinn, Brighton winger Jamie Murphy and Oliver Burke of Nottingham Forest.
