Hibs defender Paul Hanlon called into Scotland Squad

Last updated : 13 October 2020 By Steve Forbes

Defender Paul Hanlon has become the latest Hibs player to be included in the Scotland squad.

Hanlon joins team-mates Paul McGinn and Ryan Porteous in Steve Clarke's Squad to face the Czech Republic in the Nations League after Liam Cooper pulled out of the clash.

Hanlon, 30, will be looking for his first cap, but has been included once before, in 2017 for a friendly against Holland.

He has previously been capped at U19 and U21 level for his country.

Hanlon has played 437 games for the Hibees, scoring 25 goals.

A well deserved call-up for the in-form Hanlon.

It's a crime he hasn't been capped by his country before, hopefully he will finally be rewarded against the Czech's.

There's a chance Hanlon could be joined in the line-up by team-mates Ryan Porteous and Paul McGinn, which would be a big pat on the back for the Hibees start to the season.
