Team news

Captain Andy Robertson is set to play the full 90 minutes despite participating in Liverpool’s Champions League final defeat to Real Madrid on Saturday.

But Arsenal’s Kieran Tierney is definitely ruled out through injury along with Rangers’ Ryan Jack.

Nathan Patterson is doubtful for the game as Steve Clarke said last week.

“His return to play is imminent and it will just come down to match fitness. I would put him down as doubtful for the Ukraine game.”

Liam Cooper and Bologna full-back Aaron Hickey are in the squad.

Ukraine have no new injury worries and Premier League stars Andriy Yarmolenko, Oleksandr Zinchenko and Vitaliy Mykolenko are all set to feature.
