Celtic’s Callum McGregor, Anthony Ralston, Greg Taylor and James Forrest have all been named in Steve Clarke’s provisional 28-man Scotland squad for Euro 2024.

Forrest has played his way into the squad with a series of superb performances for Celtic in recent weeks as Brendan Rodgers’ side retained the Scottish Premiership title.

The 32-year-old has five international goals in 38 Scotland caps, but hasn’t played for his country since the 2-0 defeat by the Czech Republic at the last Euros in 2021.

McGregor, Ralston and Taylor have been regulars in recent Scotland squads, but Ralston could be in line to start the tournament at right wing-back given injuries to Aaron Hickey and Nathan Patterson, who both miss out on a trip to Germany.

McGregor is likely to start in the heart of midfield, while Taylor is understudy to captain Andy Robertson at left-back.

The squad will be cut to 26 players before the tournament itself, where Scotland take on Germany (14 June), Switzerland (19 June) and Hungary (23 June) in Group A.
