Brown in Scotland squad after retirement U-turn

Scott Brown celebrates Celtic's point against Borussia Monchengladbach

Scott Brown has been named in the Scotland squad to face England following the Celtic midfielder's return from international retirement.

The 31-year-old had made the decision ahead of the World Cup qualifying campaign but is back in Gordon Strachan's plans after three games.

Robert Snodgrass has been named in the squad despite having picked up an ankle injury with his club.

Hull City said on 25 October the midfielder would be out for a month.

With Hull team-mate Andrew Robertson and Celtic's Kieran Tierney having been ruled out through injury, Swansea City's Stephen Kingsley has been recalled.

He will vie with Rangers' Lee Wallace for a starting place at left-back.

Aston Villa right-back Alan Hutton, Rangers winger Barrie McKay and Hull midfielder Shaun Maloney drop out of the squad chosen for the previous Group F games against Lithuania and Slovakia.
