Rangers captain Lee Wallace has pulled out of the Scotland squad to face Malta on Sunday and has instead headed off to Belfast with the Rangers squad who play Linfield in a testimonial.

The left back was called up to replace Celtic defender Kieran Tierney, who pulled out through injury earlier in the week, but Wallace himself has now dropped out and the Scottish FA has rejected the chance to call up anyone else.

According to Rangers, Wallace pulled out due to a muscle strain and won’t play in Saturday’s friendly against Linfield at Windsor Park.

The Rangers defender would have been at best on the bench with Hull City’s Andy Robertson first pick for the left back role.
