Sheffield United striker Oli McBurnie will miss Euro 2020 with Scotland due to a fractured metatarsal.

The striker has been regularly called up to the international scene with Steve Clarke’s squad but will not be included in his 26-man squad for the Euros, which is announced this afternoon. McBurnie has scored once for Sheffield United this season and has yet to score for Scotland.

It’s another injury for Clarke after midfielders Kenny McLean and Ryan Jack were also ruled out Scotland’s first major tournament since 1998.

McBurnie tweeted: “I’m devastated that I suffered a fractured metatarsal which ruled me out for the rest of the season and has unfortunately ruled me out for the euros. Not to be able to go to that tournament with the boys is heartbreaking for me. Thank you for all your messages and support.”
