New Scotland manager George Burley has called Cardiff City midfielder Gavin Rae into his squad for the game against Croatia.

The injury ravaged Scottish squad was further depleted by the withdrawal of Barry Robson od Celtic in addition to an ankle injury to influential midfielder Barry Ferguson.

The lack of bite in the engine room has promted Burley to send for Cardiff City’s tenacious midfielder Gavin Rae. Rae has been in decent form for the Bluebirds of late while his work rate is excellent.

Burley’s squad is without many regulars for the game but the manager has asked the replacements to stake a claim in their absence.
