Celtic goalkeeper Scott Bain has been added to the Scotland squad for the forthcoming friendly matches in Peru and Mexico.

Bain, 26, replaces new Rangers signing Allan McGregor.

Motherwell midfielder Chris Cadden and Kilmarnock's Stephen O'Donnell were given their first senior call-ups after Ryan Fraser, Matt Ritchie and Barry Douglas withdrew earlier in the week.

Scotland face Peru on 30 May, then Mexico on 3 June.

Bain and Cadden, 21, are likely to be involved in Celtic and Well's Scottish Cup final squads on Saturday.
