Robert Snodgrass is back in the international fold after being selected for the latest Scottish squad by Steve Clarke.

Clarke, who was assistant manager of West Ham between April 2009 and June 2010 has included the winger in his latest 24-man squad for the forthcoming Euro 2020 qualifiers.

Scotland face Russia on Friday, 6 September at home before Belgium provide what will surely prove to be even tougher opposition three days later on Monday 9 September.

The 31-year-old Hammer, whose only start for West Ham this season came in the 1-1 draw at Brighton had been in the international wilderness prior to Clark'e appointment, having requested not to be selected during Alex McLeish's reign as Scottish boss.

And today's call-up represents his first call-up to the national squad since the Scots were hammered 4-0 by Belgium at Hampden Park a year ago.
