Leigh Griffiths and Darren Fletcher have withdrawn from the Scotland squad ahead of the upcoming international friendly against the Netherlands.
Griffiths missed Celtic's 4-0 win over St Johnstone on Saturday afternoon due to a calf injury he sustained during the midweek Champions League defeat to Bayern Munich.
Fletcher, meanwhile, played the full 90 minutes of Stoke's 2-2 draw with Leicester on Saturday but subsequently withdrew from the Scotland squad later that evening.
Scotland host the Netherlands at Aberdeen's Pittodrie Stadium on Thursday night in their first match since Gordon Strachan's departure.
Strachan left his role as Scotland manager in October after his side failed to qualify for the 2018 World Cup in Russia.
Scottish FA performance director Malky Mackay will take temporary charge of the national side for the friendly against the Netherlands.
