There was a collective sigh of relief among the nation this morning as Andy Robertson and Lawrence Shankland appeared for Scotland training in Germany.

However, there was no sign of recently released Rangers player Ryan Jack in Garmisch-Partenkirchen.

He was the only player from Steve Clarke's squad not to appear on the training pitch at Stadion am Groben, with his fitness likely to be addressed at some stage today.

It's understood there is no concern over the 32-year-old though, and he's purely being rested for the day.

Both Robertson and Shankland went off with injury concerns during yesterday's first practice session in Germany.

With kick-off against the hosts on Friday fast approaching, and given Scotland's unfortunate record with injuries recently, there were major worries over two of the national team's key players.

Assistant boss John Carver eased those fears when he spoke to the assembled media on Monday afternoon.

And it seems it was entirely precautionary for both the captain and Shankland, who this morning took part in Clarke's latest training session in preparation for Friday night.

"Andy Robertson's fine, I just spoke to him there, it was a precaution really," Carver confirmed. "The ball just caught his ankle but he'll train tomorrow. He'll be fine. 

"At this stage we're going to be extra cautious but he's okay, he's fine and he's looking forward to joining in training tomorrow.

"It's never nice [to see], is it, especially with the luck we've had lately, so as soon as training was finished I popped across and had a chat with him, but he's in good form so he's fine."

On Shankland, who netted 31 times for Heart of Midlothian last season, also limping off the training field, the Scotland coach added: "Yeah, he had a little bit of a niggle from the other night and he's in that process. Obviously he played quite a bit game time in the two games that we've played, so we are just protecting him as well. 

"And everybody has got their own program coming back as you well know, so he's fine."
