Wallace out of Scotland squad

By September 2, 2016No Comments

Late call-up Lee Wallace has pulled out of the Scotland squad ahead of their opening World Cup qualifier against Malta.

The Rangers captain was brought into the squad earlier this week after Celtic left-back Kieran Tierney withdrew.

But Wallace has pulled out, reportedly because of a muscle strain, and has travelled with his club team-mates to Belfast for Linfield player Jamie Mulgrew’s testimonial game.

The drop out leaves Hull’s Andy Robertson as the only recognised left-back in the squad for Sunday’s game at the Ta’Qali Stadium.

Wallace also withdrew from Scotland’s post-season friendlies against Italy and France after a lengthy absence from the international fold.
