Scott Brown has come out of retirement to be included in Scotland’s squad for their World Cup qualifier against England.

The Celtic captain retired from international duty after injury problems and his country’s failure to reach Euro 2016.

But he has now performed a U-turn after seeing the team win only one of their opening three qualifiers for the 2018 World Cup in Russia.

Manager Gordon Strachan, who also called up Swansea’s left-back Stephen Kingsley with Andrew Robertson and Kieran Tierney both injured, said: "Scott retired in August when he was in a different place to where he is now.

"At that time it was beneficial for him and Celtic that he retired from international football.

“We respected that but Scott is in a different place now and feels he can help us in our quest to get to a major finals."

England face Scotland at Wembley on Friday, November 11, at Wembley.
