Mulgrew called up to Scotland squad

Scotland are fourth in Uefa qualifying Group F, three points below leaders England, who occupy the sole automatic qualifying berth.

He said: "We are obviously disappointed about Robbo and Kieran Tierney who are not here, talking about left-backs, but we have cover there and those guys will get their opportunity".

"So I don't think either group of supporters or players need reminding but, of course, if the manager chooses to take that line, that will be up to him".

The Scots are rank outsiders for the "Auld Enemy" clash, and go into the game off the back of the dispiriting double-header against Lithuania and Slovakia that yielded just a solitary point only a month ago.

He gave us a lift when he came in because we were looking down.

"Gordon will probably want to keep quiet, keep his powder dry, and try and deliver a famous result". If he's only going to come back for one game I don't feel it's right for the other players who are sat on the bench.

Mark McGhee insists no one in the Scotland camp needs to be reminded of the age-old rivalry with England. We say "Wait a minute, all hope is not lost" and when we're backed into a corner we can produce the best results.


The Scottish and English Football Associations have said their teams will wear poppies on black armbands during the game, which goes against a Fifa directive. I don't think Barry Bannan has...

"Let's be honest, England are not in a great shape at the moment, so there's no reason why we can't achieve a positive result".

"First and foremost, for me, my club form is more important than anything".

And the 42-year-old, who played in Scotland's last win at Wembley in 1999, feels Griffiths could be the man to reignite Scotland's campaign on Friday.

The ITV Player will allow UK-based viewers to catch the game live as Gareth Southgate looks to secure his second win as interim England manager.

"But what the other two bring is a physical aspect which maybe Griff can't offer and Gordon has already touched on that, I know there has been a lot made of the size thing".
