Lee Hodson has been called up to the Northern Ireland squad.

He got the call on Sunday after Paul Paton was forced to withdraw because of a knee injury.

Northern Ireland play Scotland in Glasgow on Wednesday night and then face Finland at Windsor Park on Sunday, March 29, in a Euro 2016 qualifier.

Meanwhile, Ross McCormack has withdrawn from the Scotland squad for the double-header against Northern Ireland and Gibraltar.

The 28-year-old Fulham forward picked up a knee injury playing against Leeds in midweek.

Scotland boss Gordon Strachan has no plans to bring in anyone else for the Vauxhall International challenge match against Northern Ireland which is followed by the Euro qualifier against Group D’s bottom side at the same venue on Sunday.

The Scots are in third place in their section with seven points from four games with Poland topping the table on 10 points.
