The 32-year-old has yet to make a Premier League appearance for new club Burnley but the Hull City goalkeeper's shoulder injury has cleared the way for an international recall

Burnley goalkeeper Matt Gilks has been called up to replace the injured Allan McGregor in the Scotland squad.

The Hull City No.1 has been ruled out for a month with a shoulder problem, with Tigers boss Steve Bruce confirming the news at a press conference on Thursday.

And the Scottish Football Association revealed on Friday that Gilks will fill the gap left behind.

Gordon Strachan's men host Georgia in a Euro 2016 qualifier on October 11 before visiting Poland three days later.

Gilks, whose only Burnley appearance so far since signing from Blackpool came in a 1-0 League Cup defeat to Sheffield Wednesday in August, joins Celtic's Craig Gordon and David Marshall of Cardiff City in Scotland's goalkeeping ranks.

The 32-year-old has represented his country on three previous occasions.
