Scotland call-up for Millwall’s Jordan Archer and Hibs’ Steven Whittaker


AUGUST 21, 2017 – Millwall goalkeeper Jordan Archer has received his first call-up to the Scotland squad, with Hibernian utility man Steven Whittaker being recalled.

Newcastle United duo Grant Hanley and Matt Ritchie also return for World Cup qualifiers against Lithuania and Malta.

And West Bromwich Albion winger Matt Phillips is back too from injury.

But there is no place again for in-form Celtic midfielder Callum McGregor, while Aberdeen and Rangers are not represented in Gordon Strachan’s party.

Archer replaces injured Hull City goalkeeper David Marshall and is chosen ahead of Hearts’ Jack Hamilton, who had been called into the squad for June’s 2-2 draw with England as injury cover.
