Scotland: USA boss Jurgen Klinsmann names 23-man squad

Former Rangers player Damarcus Beasley

Former Rangers players DaMarcus Beasley and Alejandro Bedoya are part of a 23-man USA squad to face Scotland in a friendly on Friday.

USA manager Jurgen Klinsmann also includes Everton goalkeeper Tim Howard, Sunderland striker Jozy Altidore and former Fulham forward Clint Dempsey.

It is the last time Scotland will play at Hampden before development work begins for the 2014 Commonwealth Games.

In May 2012, the USA defeated Scotland 5-1 in a friendly match in Florida.

Bedoya struggled to make his mark at Ibrox in a spell during 2011-12 and now plays for French Ligue 1 side Nantes.

Winger Beasley, now in Mexico with Puebla, won two league titles with Rangers between 2007 and 2010, as well as the Scottish Cup and the Scottish League Cup.
