The Liverpool left-back required surgery on a dental issue.

Andy Robertson will miss Scotland’s 2020 European Championship qualifier with Kazakhstan on Thursday but will join up with the team in San Marino on Friday.

The Liverpool left-back missed the team flight to Astana with a dental problem which required surgery but there were suggestions he could make his own way and be ready for the match.

However, the Scottish Football Association confirmed he will be absent for the Group I opener but will be available for the match against San Marino three days later.

Scotland captain Robertson played in the Premier League win over Fulham on Sunday and is set to be replaced at left-back by Kieran Tierney.

Robertson underwent treatment on Monday but he has been told by medical staff that he needs more time for his mouth to settle down.

The defender will now make his own way to Italy on Friday ahead of Scotland’s second qualifier against San Marino.

Tierney sat out training in an indoor arena in Astana on Tuesday but did some work on his own back at the team hotel after playing through a niggle during Celtic’s win over Dundee on Sunday. He is expected to be fit.

Aberdeen centre-back Scott McKenna trained with his team-mates after doing an individual warm-up after playing through a thigh strain on Saturday.
