Scotland trio Adams, Patterson and McLean out of Steve Clarke’s squad for Turkey friendly SNS Group

Three Scotland players have pulled out of the squad to play Turkey on Wednesday.

Steve Clarke will now be without Che Adams, Nathan Patterson and Kenny McLean for the friendly match in Diyarbakir.

All three played the full 90 minutes for their respective clubs in England at the weekend.

Adams scored for Southampton in their 3-1 defeat at Liverpool, McLean played all of Norwich City’s Championship loss to Middlesbrough and Patterson played right back for Everton at Bournemouth.

Scotland were already without Anthony Ralston and Greg Taylor after no Celtic players were released for the game.

It’s not yet known if Clarke will bring in any replacements for the latest drop outs.

At such short notice it is likely he will decide to go with the squad he has available to him with the likes of Liverpool’s Calvin Ramsay in line for his international debut.
