But Robertson is set to lead the team in their friendly against World Cup semi-finalists Belgium on Friday and in their first UEFA Nations League match against Albania on September 10.

The 24-year-old made his debut for Scotland in 2014 as a second-half substitute in a 1-0 friendly win over Poland.

Robertson has since established himself as a key player in the national team, as well as at club level.

He made 30 appearances for Liverpool last season following a £10m move from Hull and has started all four of their Premier League games in the new 2018-19 campaign.

Scotland will also have to announce a squad replacement with Swansea striker Oli McBurnie having withdrawn through injury.
