Fulham captain Tom Cairney has been ruled out of Scotland's upcoming double-header through injury.

The 27-year-old suffered a blow to the ankle during the Cottagers' 4-2 Premier League win over Burnley at the weekend.

He has now been ruled out of action for the next few weeks and will miss the Scots' friendly against World Cup finalists Belgium and the Nations League opener against Albania.

Cairney was hoping to build on his two senior caps to date, having made his debut against Canada last year before featuring in Alex McLeish's first game back in charge against Costa Rica.

Scotland assistant Peter Grant had tipped the former Hull playmaker for a starring role under the new regime before the extent of his ankle injury was revealed.
