Kris Commons will be unfit to play against Denmark due to a foot injury.

Kris Commons has been ruled out of Scotland's lineup for tomorrow's friendly against Denmark at Hampden Park.

The Celtic midfielder sustained a foot injury during his club's 1-0 victory against Aberdeen on Sunday.

Asked whether the 27-year-old will be included in tomorrow's squad, Craig Levein said: "Unfortunately not - he becomes the third withdrawal. He's got bone bruising."

However, the Scotland manager added that he has confidence in the strength in depth of his squad. "What is hugely encouraging for me is the quality of the group as a whole is such now that the drop off isn't significant at all," he explained.

Commons joins teammates Alan Hutton and Steven Whittaker in being ruled out of the friendly, which kicks off at 7.45pm tomorrow.
