Austria v Scotland – McGregor starts alongside for three former Celtic teammates in World Cup showdown

Callum McGregor is in the Scotland starting eleven that will face Austria this evening at the Ernst-Happel Stadion in the World Cup qualifier. The Celtic captain is joined in Steve Clarke’s side by three former Celtic team-mates Craig Gordon, Jack Hendry and Kieran Tierney.

The Scotland team is Gordon, Stephen O’Donnell, Andy Robertson (captain), Billy Gilmour, Grant Hanley, Tierney, John McGinn, McGregor, Lyndon Dykes, Che Adams and Jack Hendry.

On the bench for Scotland are Kelly, Clark, Ryan Christie, McKenna, Gallagher, Cooper, Ferguson., David Turnbull, Nisbet and Paul McGinn.

The game kicks off at 7.45pm and is live on Sky Sports. This is the third and final match in the international break so we can get back to watching Celtic on Saturday. Hope Kyogo is good to go!

Meanwhile Scotland Under 21s are currently drawing 1-1 away in Turkey with Glenn Middleton scoring from an Adam Montgomery cross. Hopefully they can hold out for the win and Steve Clarke’s Scotland can have a good night too. Best of luck to Callum McGregor and David Turnbull in Austria…
