Leeds defender Liam Cooper replaces injured Blackburn star Grant Hanley in Gordon

Leeds defender Liam Cooper replaces injured Blackburn star Grant Hanley in Gordon

The Scottish FA announced on Twitter that the trio had been ruled out and that uncapped Leeds defender Liam Cooper has been called into the squad.

The centre-back was recalled to the Whites starting eleven on Saturday and played his part in Leeds beating Brighton 2-0 at Elland Road, keeping the side's promotion push in the Championship on track.

Also out of both Wednesday night's friendly against Canada and this Sunday's World Cup qualifier against Slovenia are West Brom's Matt Phillips and Crystal Palace's James McArthur.

Now Cooper's weekend has got even better with a call-up to the senior Scotland squad.

The 25-year-old Cooper was born in Hull but qualifies through his Scottish grandfather and has represented Scotland at U17 and U19 level.

Gordon Strachan says Jordan Rhodes could play a part in Scotland's double-header after the Sheffield Wednesday striker's recall to the worldwide set-up.

Strachan's side will be looking to put themselves back into contention for qualification to the 2018 World Cup, when they face Slovenia, who are now second in Group F and hold a four-point advantage over Scotland.
