Michael O’Neill has included the veteran centre-back despite him not featuring for his club since the 5-0 defeat to Livingston in mid-December.

The 39-year-old is one of seven SPFL players included for the Euro 2020 qualifying double-header.

He joins Rangers trio Gareth McAuley, Steven Davis and Kyle Lafferty in the squad. There’s also a place for Kilmarnock winger Jordan Jones, Aberdeen playmaker Niall McGinn and Partick Thistle’s on loan Celtic goalkeeper Conor Hazard.
