Scotland Under-21s: Hearts pair Lewis Neilson and Connor Smith called up with Bayern Munich prospect

Hearts pair Lewis Neilson and Connor Smith and former Hibs full-back Josh Doig of Hellas Verona have been named in the Scotland Under-21 squad for this month’s friendly with Iceland at Fir Park.

Bayern Munich defender Liam Morrison has also earned his first call-up. The 19-year-old joined the German giants from Celtic in 2019 and has been playing for their second team.

Morrison is joined in Scot Gemmill's squad by two other new faces in the shape of Newcastle goalkeeper Jude Smith and Middlesbrough midfielder Hayden Hackney.
