The midfielder was sent home from the team hotel late on Tuesday night after a decision was taken not to risk aggravating an ankle problem.

The Celtic skipper will return to the Scotland camp on Saturday and will be assessed by medics ahead of next week's clash with Spain at Hampden.

The rest of the Scotland squad are set to fly out to Prague on Wednesday evening.
