Hearts duo Barrie McKay and Stephen Kingsley have been called up to the Scotland squad for the crunch Nations League game against Ukraine.

Kieran Tierney and Scott McKenna have pulled out through injury and Scott McTominay is suspended after picking up a booking in the win over Republic of Ireland.

The game in Krakow, Poland, is the final group stage game with Scotland currently two points ahead of their opponents.

A draw against the side they defeated 3-0 at Hampden on Wednesday night would guarantee promotion to Group A and secure at least a playoff spot for Euro 2024 as well as likely meaning Scotland will be seeded in pot 2 for the upcoming qualifiers.

Left back Kingsley and former Rangers winger McKay, who has been receiving rave reviews for his early season performances for Hearts, have one Scotland cap each.

Both will be hoping they can add to that in Poland with Steve Clarke’s men looking to end the tournament on a high and give his side a better chance of playing at the second Euros in a row.
