Double blow for Levein with McCulloch and McFadden doubtful for Scotland

01 March 2010 11:47
Lee McCulloch and James McFadden are doubts for Scotland's friendly against the Czech Republic at Hampden on Wednesday.

The Rangers midfielder sustained an ankle injury in Sunday's Old Firm derby win over Celtic at Ibrox while Birmingham ace McFadden reported with a groin strain.

Manchester United star Darren Fletcher has a tight hamstring but will train on Tuesday while Dundee United defender Andy Webster will shrug off his calf injury to train today.

Scotland manager Craig Levein has no plans to add to his 24-man squad.

  Levein's assistant, Peter Houston, claimed Celtic skipper Scott Brown was in fine fettle when he joined up with his Scotland team-mates despite being controversially sent off against Rangers in the 1-0 defeat.

Houston said: 'He was in great form. He had a bit of banter but that's Scotty for you.

'Half the squad will be training today, half will be doing a recovery session.'
