Speaking about Caldwell`s omission Stark said - 'For a November friendly, a lot of football has already been played and some players will have niggles they would love the opportunity to shake off.

'Allan McGregor and Gary Caldwell, in particular, have been real stalwarts and terrific players for the national team in recent years.

'I've spoken to them and they were grateful to have the opportunity to have a wee break from this game.

'There is nothing more to it than that. It's simply the stage they are at.'


The squad in full is:

Charlie Adam (Stoke City)
Barry Bannan (Aston Villa)
Phil Bardsley (Sunderland)
