Scotland boss Alex McLeish names seven uncapped players for Peru and Mexico matches
Last Updated: 14/05/18 3:03pm
John Souttar, Lewis Morgan and Lewis Stevenson have all been called up Scotland for the first time.
Hearts defender Souttar, new Celtic winger Morgan and Hibernian left-back Stevenson have been named in a 24-man squad for the trip to face Peru and Mexico.
The other four uncapped players are goalkeepers Jordan Archer of Millwall and Jon McLaughlin of Hearts and midfielders Graeme Shinnie of Aberdeen and Dylan McGeouch of Hibernian.
Manchester United midfielder Scott McTominay has also been included after making his international debut in March.
Ryan Christie, Stuart Armstrong, Jack Hendry and Morgan are the only Celtic players included after Alex McLeish and his backroom team considered who would benefit from a rest.
McLeish said: "I'm really excited to work with the players included. They have all been guys who have been in really good form for their clubs.
"I've known Lewis (Stevenson) since he was a kid and he's been very consistent. I've rarely seen a full-back play at such a level throughout a season. So many legends of the game have also echoed my sentiments.
"John (Souttar) is a good young prospect and been playing under Peter Grant at the under-21s, progressing very well.
"He's still got a lot to learn but he's had a great season under Christophe Berra who would have kept him right.
"I love to see young players getting a chance and Lewis Morgan is certainly someone who has emerged.
"I've had a lot of feedback from people who have worked with him and he's really dynamic. We need to start encouraging that level of talent."
