Liverpool defender, Calvin Ramsay has earned a maiden senior call-up for Scotland’s international friendly against Turkey on 16 November. 

Celtic’s defensive duo of Anthony Ralston and Greg Taylor plus Brentford’s Aaron Hickey all drop out due to injury, which has allowed the Liverpool duo of Ramsay plus Andrew Robertson to be called up.

For Ramsay, this is his first senior call-up since his move to Anfield this summer which has been largely limit due to injury – with just one appearance which came in the Champions League as a substitute in last week’s win over Napoli.

In goal, Rangers’ Jon McLaughlin has been dropped in favour of his club teammate, Robby McCrorie whilst Craig Gordon and Liam Kelly retain their places in the squad.

Clarke meanwhile has recalled Lewis Ferguson in midfield after Celtic’s Callum McGregor and David Turnbull were left out due to injury, after Ferguson had been omitted from September’s squad to make room for Kenny McLean who has retained his spot.

There have been no changes up front as Che Adams, Jacob Brown, Ryan Christie, Lyndon Dykes and Ryan Fraser retain their places in the forward selection of the squad.

This international friendly away to Turkey at Diyarbakir Stadium, Diyarbakir on Wednesday 16 November (6pm GMT UK Time), will see the Tartan Army in action for the first time since they secured promotion to UEFA Nations League A.

Here is the 23-man squad to play Ukraine and Republic of Ireland in full:

Goalkeeper: Craig Gordon (Hearts), Liam Kelly (Motherwell), Robby McCrorie (Rangers)

Defence: Grant Hanley (Norwich), Jack Hendry (Cremonese), Scott McKenna (Nottingham Forest), Nathan Patterson (Everton), Ryan Porteous (Hibernian), Calvin Ramsay (Liverpool), Andrew Robertson (Liverpool), Kieran Tierney (Arsenal)
