Liam Palmer looks to be a doubt for Scotland next week as the Sheffield Wednesday right-back was substituted on Saturday with injury.

The full-back has been a useful tool for Scotland boss Steve Clarke in previous internationals. He has been deployed as right-wing-back, looking comfortable in recent outings as Palmer looks to have solved Scotland’s problems in that area of defence.

But it could become an issue again. Picking up injury with four days to go until Scotland’s massive match could rule the Sheffield Wednesday man out of proceedings.

Clarke will lead the nation into a Euro 2020 play-off semi-final match with Israel on Thursday night. A win would set up a tie with Norway or Serbia next month for a place at Euro 2020 this coming summer.

Palmer’s injury will be a headache for Clarke ahead of this momentous occasion.
