Andy Robertson will miss Scotland's 2020 European Championship qualifier with Kazakhstan on Thursday but will join up with the team in San Marino on Friday.

The Liverpool left-back didn't board the team flight to Astana on Sunday due to a dental problem which required surgery.

But there were suggestions he could make his own way to Kazakhstan and be available for the match.

However, the Scottish Football Association confirmed he will be absent for the Group I opener but will be available for the match against San Marino three days later.

Scotland captain Robertson played in the Premier League win over Fulham on Sunday and is set to be replaced at left-back by Kieran Tierney.

However, Celtic left back Tierney sat out training in Astana this afternoon to receive medical treatment at the team hotel. Scotland medical staff are hopeful he will be available to Kazakhstan. 

Robertson underwent treatment on Monday, but he has been told by medical staff that he needs more time for his mouth to settle down.

The defender will now make his own way to Italy on Friday ahead of Scotland's second qualifier against San Marino.
