Darren Fletcher has withdrawn from the Scotland squad for the World Cup qualifying double-header against Lithuania and Malta with a knee injury.
The Stoke midfielder did not travel to Vilnius with Gordon Strachan's squad on Thursday ahead of Friday night's crunch Group F fixture, live on Sky Sports Football.
Before his side trained at the LFF Stadium, Strachan admitted the 33-year-old midfielder would be a loss.
He said: "The injury is a knee injury. He is a fantastic example of how to behave as an international player, a top player on and off the pitch."
