Declan Gallagher and Josh Doig brought into Scotland squad as Nathan Patterson and David Turnbull drop out SNS Group

Steve Clarke has called up Declan Gallagher and Josh Doig to bolster his Scotland squad ahead of Nations League games.

The pair come in as Everton’s Nathan Patterson and Celtic’s David Turnbull drop out ahead of the games against Republic of Ireland and Ukraine.

St Mirren centre-back Gallagher was a key member of the team that qualified for the European Championship and made the squad for the finals but has not played for his country since a warm-up game against Luxembourg in May 2021.

Hellas Verona’s former Hibs left-back Doig played for the under-21s in a win over Northern Ireland on Thursday.

Patterson was wheeled out of Hampden on a stretcher after suffering a knee injury during the 3-0 victory over Ukraine on Wednesday.

Celtic midfielder Turnbull has failed to shake off an ankle knock.
