STEVE Clarke will be without six of the players he selected in his Scotland squad for the match against Israel tomorrow, after a further three dropped out.

Earlier today, it emerged that Stuart Armstrong had tested positive for Covid-19, and close contacts Kieran Tierney and Ryan Christie would also have to self-isolate.

It means that all three will miss the fixture, and Christie will miss the upcoming Old Firm game.

And Clarke's job was made all the more difficult when it emerged that Liam Palmer, Scott McKenna and Oli Burke had withdrawn from the squad.

Scotland face Israel tomorrow in the Euro 2020 play-off, if they win at Hampden they will be only one match away from a major finals.
