Three new faces in Mackay's first Scotland squad

Interim Scotland manager Malky Mackay has named three new faces in his squad for the friendly against the Netherlands next week.

Mackay took over from Gordon Strachan on a temporary basis earlier this month after Scotland failed to reach the play-offs in World Cup qualifying.

Ryan Christie, Jason Cummings and Paul Hanlon have all been called up for the first time by the former Cardiff City manager, while there are five other uncapped players in the squad – Jordan Archer, Liam Cooper, Ryan Jack, Callum McGregor and Graeme Shinnie.

Darren Fletcher, Craig Gordon and Scott Brown are the most experienced players at Mackay's disposal for the clash at Pittodrie on Thursday 9th November.
