Former Hearts and Bologna star Hickey, 21, hasn’t played since last October after suffering a serious hamstring injury.

Bees boss Thomas Frank revealed last week the latest update on his progress was not positive, sparking fears he’d miss the tournament.

It’s now understood SFA chiefs have given up hope that Hickey will be fit for any stage of the finals and will target replacements.

With Everton ace Nathan Patterson also out, Celtic‘s Anthony Ralston could be handed a slot in Clarke’s squad for Germany.
