Familiar friends and foes for Boruc

ARTUR BORUC may come up against his old Celtic team-mates David Marshall, Charlie Mulgrew and Scott Brown after being named in the provisional Poland squad to face Scotland.

The Southampton goalkeeper is one of 18 foreign-based players to have been selected by national manager Adam Nawalka.

His squad will be supplemented by a handful of home-grown players, to be announced early next week.

Boruc - a veteran of some heated Old Firm battles in his five years in Glasgow - will also renew hostilities with former Rangers players Allan McGregor, Alan Hutton, Steven Whittaker, Charlie Adam, Chris Burke and Steven Naismith on March 5 in Warsaw.

Robert Lewandowski, however, will be the star attraction at Poland's national stadium after the Borussia Dortmund striker was selected to captain the squad. The 25-year-old has already scored 19 goals this term and will join European champions Bayern Munich in the close season.

His Dortmund team-mate Lukasz Piszczek will also be a threat to Gordon Strachan's side, while he is joined by a number of Bundesliga regulars in an experienced squad picked by Nawalka.
