Steve Clarke does not have his problems to seek at the moment.

The Scotland boss finds himself and his players out of the Euro 2020 qualifying group mathematically.

A dismal double-header against Russia saw to that.

In fairness, Clarke's troops did smash San Marino 6-0 at Hampden the following week, but it was way too little, way too late to ignite any sort of fightback.

One thing Clarke must now fully address is his playing squad.

He's had the opportunity to see the majority of available players in action.

And if their performances in Group I is anything to go by, he could be doing with looking further afield for players to try and make an impact.

Manchester United's Scott McTominay is not a Scottish-born player but he's number one pick in Scotland's midfield.

Oli McBurnie was born in Leeds. Liam Palmer in Nottinghamshire.

The manager may not have too much strength in depth with his current squad, but what about players who are starring for their clubs who are eligible to play for Scotland?

Here's a list of players who could be picked by the coach in his next 25-man set-up should he opt to look elsewhere for talent.

Angus Gunn

Evening Times:

The Southampton stopper's dad Bryan played a handful of times for the Scottish national team.

Steve Clarke has even reportedly sounded him out for a potential cap previously.

One stumbling block is that Gunn, 23, has represented England at under-21s level and appears happier fighting to become a member of the Three Lions' squad.

Todd Kane

Kane, 26, has previously been approached to play for Scotland but refused in a bid to further his club career in its early stages.

Now a prominent member of the QPR side, he could be open to another approach.

He qualifies through his dad and would be a very handy option at right-back - somewhat of a problem area for Scotland in recent years.

He has represented England at under-19 and under-21 level.

Matt Targett

Left-back Targett has represented Scotland at under-19s level but never made it into an A-squad.

Currently playing his football in the Premier League with Aston Villa, he could be an option.

Celtic youngster Karamoko Dembele opts for England over Scotland

Though it's not entirely sure where he'd fit in - given that Scotland's two best players would be in the same position.

It is also understood that he's hoping to play for England, rather than Scots as he's represented them at under-21s.

Ryan Fredericks

Eligible through his granddad, West Ham's Fredericks has played eight times for his club in the big-time this season so far.

Scotland, as aforementioned, desperately need cover on the right-side of defence for Stephen O'Donnell.

Evening Times:

And Fredericks could be the man for the job.

Luis Binks

Binks is at Tottenham Hotspur at the moment which, regardless of game time, is not to be sniffed at.

He played for Scotland under-18s against France but has not featured for any other level since.

He's still only 18-years-old and by all accounts has a decent career ahead as a central midfielder.

Steve Clarke would be smart to get in fast. Scot Gemmill, perhaps, first...

Jensen Weir

The son of Rangers icon Davie, Jensen has already made his first-team debut for Wigan Athletic.

He made a cameo appearance in the EFL Cup against Stoke City at just 17-years-old.

He is an England schoolboy international, though, but his dad David could be able to convince his boy to switch allegiances - given he won 69 caps in royal blue during his playing career.

Lyndon Dykes

Evening Times:

Australian-born Dykes has already expressed an interest in playing for Scotland, should Steve Clarke make the move to bring him into a squad.

Graham Arnold is also believed to be sniffing around so it would be smart for Clarke to make a move for the Livingston striker if he fancies it, sooner rather than later.

Che Adams

Adams is another player who has been sounded out by Scotland in the past.

Now he's a £15million star after joining Premier League Southampton from Birmingham recently.

Alex McLeish previously wanted to bring him into a Scotland squad but the offer was rejected at the time.

Now that he's plying his trade in the biggest league in the world, he might be more willing to take his chance on an international cap with Steve Clarke.
