KIERAN TIERNEY is out of the Scotland squad to face Portugal tomorrow.

The Celtic defender played in central defence against Israel on Thursday and scored the own goal which decided the match.

Charlie Mulgrew, Robert Snodgrass and John Souttar have also dropped out of the squad for a match that is likely to attract around 15,000 fans to Hampden.

Celtic’s Ryan Christie has been brought into the squad along with Aberdeen duo Gary Mackay-Steven and Mikey Devlin.

Mulgrew and Souttar both played against Israel but Snodgrass appears to have picked up an injury without stepping onto the pitch.

With Tierney out of the squad Alex McLeish can return to a 4-4-2 formation with Andy Robertson playing in his club position.

Celtic face Hibs at home next Saturday with Tierney getting a full week to prepare for an important club match rather than the distraction of working with tax cheat McLeish.
