Dundee United striker Lawrence Shankland will want more Scotland goals, says Steve Clarke

Steve Clarke has welcomed Dundee United striker Lawrence Shankland back into his Scotland squad.

The Tannadice talisman impressed the national coach when he was given a taste of international football as a lower league as a lower league player last season.

And Clarke knows the former Ayr United man will be hungry to make his mark again after scoring in the Hampden Park thrashing of San Marino.

The Scots have a triple-header at the national stadium, the first of them being the most important – the delayed Euro 2020 play-off semi-final against Israel.

As well as selecting Shankland after he dropped out of the last camp with an ankle injury, Clarke has also recalled Ryan Fraser, Oli McBurnie and Ryan Porteous.

James Forrest is sidelined, with Ryan Jack named but a doubt.

Clarke said: “It is good to have Lawrence back available. He came into the squad at the end of last year and did well for us.

“He got his first goal against San Marino and I am sure he is looking forward to adding to that tally.

“Ryan (Porteous) was in the squad in November and I thought he trained well with us.

“He didn’t get the chance to play but he comes into the squad this time on the back of a really good start for his club and I look forward to working with him again.

“Obviously if Ryan Jack is not fit to play for Rangers in the next two games it will be more difficult to come with the Scottish national team but I will give him every chance to be fit and available.”
