James Forrest and Greg Taylor are out of the Scotland squad for the upcoming World Cup qualifying triple-header, the Scottish Football Association have confirmed on their official Twitter account.

The Celtic duo missed the 1-0 defeat by Rangers at Ibrox on Sunday as did Gers right-back Nathan Patterson, who, along with Aston Villa’s John McGinn, who has tested positive for Covid-19, “are currently following government guidelines and will not be available for our match against Denmark”.

Scotland play Denmark away on Wednesday and then host Moldova at Hampden on Saturday night before a trip to Austria next Tuesday.
