Allan McGregor withdraws from Scotland squad
Allan McGregor drops out of Scotland's squad for the upcoming friendly internationals against Peru and Mexico, with the uncapped Scott Bain taking his place.

Scotland will be without goalkeeper Allan McGregor for their end-of-season friendlies against Peru and Mexico.

The 29-year-old, who signed for Rangers on a free contract earlier this week, has been replaced in the squad by Celtic's Scott Bain.

Bain will be hoping to win his first cap in the upcoming games, having only once been called up to the senior national side.

Millwall's Jordan Archer and Jon McLaughlin of Hearts are the other two keepers in Scotland's travelling party.

Alex McLeish's men face Peru on May 30, before taking on Mexico four days later as part of their American tour.

Updated Scotland squad:

Goalkeepers: Jordan Archer (Millwall), Scott Bain (Celtic), Jon McLaughlin (Hearts)

Defenders: Jack Hendry (Celtic), Scott McKenna (Aberdeen), Charlie Mulgrew (Blackburn Rovers), Stephen O'Donnell (Kilmarnock), Callum Paterson (Cardiff City), John Souttar (Hearts), Lewis Stevenson (Hibernian).

Midfielders: Stuart Armstrong (Celtic), Chris Cadden (Motherwell), Dylan McGeouch (Hibernian), John McGinn (Hibernian), Kenny McLean (Aberdeen), Scott McTominay (Manchester United), Jamie Murphy (Rangers), Graeme Shinnie (Aberdeen), Ryan Christie (Celtic).

Forwards: Ollie McBurnie (Swansea City, on loan at Barnsley), Lewis Morgan (Celtic), Matt Phillips (West Bromwich Albion), Johnny Russell (Sporting Kansas City)
