Norwich City captain Russell Martin and club mate Steven Whittaker have both been called into Scotland's squad for upcoming Euro2016 qualifiers against Georgia and World Champions Germany.

The duo have been regular members of Gordan Strachan's set-up for the qualifying campaign, with the Scots going into the latest round of games sitting third in Group D, with 11 points from six games, three points behind current leaders Poland.

Scotland visit Tiblisi on September 4 before hosting the Germans at Hampden Park on September 7.

Only the top two in each group qualify automatically for the finals in France next summer, along with the best third placed team. The remaining third placed teams will contest play-offs to decide the last four qualifying places at the tournament.
