SCOTLAND skipper Andy Robertson will MISS the Euro 2020 qualifier away to Kazakhstan on Thursday.

The Liverpool left-back has been sidelined with a dental problem. He flew to Glasgow for checks and it has been decided he will undergo surgery.

Robertson will miss the trip for the Euro opener, but could still play a role against San Marino on Sunday.

The former Queen’s Park, Dundee United and Hull City defender played the entire 90 minutes of the Anfield side’s dramatic 2-1 win over relegation-threatened Fulham yesterday that Jurgen Klopp’s men back to the top of the Premier League.

Robertson, 25, was appointed captain by international gaffer Alex McLeish in September last year and has won 28 caps since making his debut in March 2014.

The Scots boss has a ready-made replacement in Celtic’s Kieran Tierney who has played in several positions to accommodate the Kop star in the No.3 berth.
