Celtic left-back Kieran Tierney will miss Scotland’s European Championship qualifying opener in Kazakhstan on Thursday with a hip problem.
Tierney, 22, was expected to replace captain Andrew Robertson, who misses the game after having dental surgery, but has not trained this week.
Liverpool’s Robertson will join the squad for Sunday’s game in San Marino, and Tierney could also be available.
Celtic midfielder Callum McGregor will now captain Alex McLeish’s side.
Jordan Archer, Barry Bannan and Charlie Mulgrew dropped out prior to the squad’s departure, with Liam Kelly and Stuart Findlay called up.
Aberdeen captain Graeme Shinnie and uncapped Kilmarnock centre-half Findlay could deputise at left-back, or manager McLeish may go with three central defenders.
However, potential wing-back candidates Callum Paterson and Ryan Fraser will not be involved due to concerns over the artificial surface in Astana.
