Hibs pair Paul Hanlon and John McGinn have been called into the latest Scotland squad.

Defender Hanlon, 27, has been handed his first ever senior call-up, to face Holland in a friendly, at Pittodrie, on November 9th.

It's long overdue for the outstanding former Scotland U21 captain.

Midfielder John McGinn, 23, has also been included once again, after another excellent spell in the green and white.

Steven Whittaker, however, has been dropped after being included in the last few squads picked by Gordon Strachan before his resignation.

Also included in the squad for the first time is former Hibs striker Jason Cummings.

The 22-year-old has made a bright start to his career in England, following his £1m summer move to Nottingham Forest.

There is also places for former Hibs players Scott Brown and Leigh Griffiths.

Other deserved call-up's to interim boss Malky Mackay's squad are the excellent Aberdeen trio Graeme Shinnie, Ryan Christie and Kenny McLean.

The full Scotland squad is:

 

Goalkeepers: Jordan Archer (Millwall), Craig Gordon (Celtic), David Marshall (Hull City)

 

Defenders: Callum Paterson (Cardiff), Kieran Tierney (Celtic), Andrew Robertson (Liverpool), Liam Cooper (Leeds), Paul Hanlon (Hibernian), Charlie Mulgrew (Blackburn), Christophe Berra (Hearts)

 

Midfielders: Stuart Armstrong (Celtic), Scott Brown (Celtic), Callum McGregor (Celtic), James Forrest (Celtic), Darren Fletcher (Stoke City), Ryan Fraser (Bournemouth), Ryan Jack (Rangers), John McGinn (Hibernian), Kenny McLean (Aberdeen), Matt Phillips (West Brom), Graeme Shinnie (Aberdeen), Ryan Christie (Aberdeen* on loan from Celtic)

 

Forwards: Jason Cummings (Nottingham Forest), Leigh Griffiths (Celtic)
