SCOTLAND skipper Andy Robertson will miss tomorrow afternoon’s Euro 2020 qualifier against Kazakhstan in Astana, as Scotzine reported earlier this week.

However, the left-back will be available for the second tie in San Marino on Sunday.

Robertson was forced to withdraw from his nation’s kick-off in the competition after he remained at home to receive dental surgery on an abscess.

Celtic’s Kieran Tierney is set to face the Kazakhs tomorrow and international boss Alex McLeish will then have a selection headache when the Liverpool ace joins up with the squad for the second tie.

In previous fixtures, the Hoops star has accommodated the former Queen’s Park, Dundee United and Hull City full-back by playing on the right flank or the left-hand side of the midfield.

Robertson, 25, was appointed Scots captain in September last year and has won 28 caps since making his debut in March 2014.

Blackburn’s versatile defender/midfielder Charlie Mulgrew, Millwall goalkeeper Jordan Archer and Sheffield Wednesday midfielder Barry Bannan have already been forced to pull out of the squad through injury.
