Hearts and Hibs will be represented at this summer’s European Championships after Scotland manager Steve Clarke selected Craig Gordon and Kevin Nisbet in his squad for the tournament.

Hibs striker Kevin Nisbet and Hearts goalkeeper Craig Gordon are in the Scotland Euros squad.

Jambos goalkeeper Gordon and Hibees hitman Nisbet have made the cut and were included in the 26-man pool for the Group D matches against Czech Republic, England and Croatia.

They are the only two players from the Capital to be picked, with there being no place for recent Easter Road call-ups Ryan Porteous, Paul Hanlon and Paul McGinn, while Hearts stopper John Souttar can count himself so unlucky that his recovery from an Achilles injury did not come a few months earlier.

Gordon will fight it out with Derby keeper David Marshall to be Scotland’s No.1, while Nisbet will hope to add to his solitary cap that was earned back in March against the Faroe Islands.

There were, however, no places for Aberdeen defender Andy Considine and Celtic striker Leigh Griffiths, while Dundee United forward Lawrence Shankland misses out.

Three uncapped players made the cut, with maiden call-ups for Rangers right-back Nathan Patterson, Chelsea midfielder Billy Gilmour and attacking midfielder David Turnbull of Celtic.

Scotland take on the Czechs at Hampden on Monday, June 14, England at Wembley on Friday, June 18 and Croatia back at Hampden on Tuesday, June 22.
