Malaga forward Jack Harper is among 10 uncapped players named in the Scotland Under-21 squad to face Estonia.

The former Real Madrid youth player has been on goalscoring form for Atletico Malagueno, Malaga's reserve team, who top Group 9 of the Spanish third tier.

Kilmarnock's Greg Taylor and Celtic's Jamie McCart, on loan at Inverness Caledonian Thistle, are the new additions in defence.

St Mirren's Stephen Mallan is among the new crop of midfielders.

Motherwell's Dom Thomas and Celtic's Joe Thomson are rewarded for their loan spells with Queen of the South in the Scottish Championship by being included in the squad for the friendly at Paisley 2021 Stadium on 28 March.

St Mirren's stadium will be a familiar venue for Celtic's Paul McMullan, who had a spell there on loan before his present stint with Dunfermline Athletic, and the Buddies' Lewis Morgan, who are the new forwards along with Harper in Scot Gemmill's squad.

Wolves' Jack Ruddy, who began his career with Real Murcia, is one of two uncapped goalkeepers.

The other is Devlin Mackay, who is on loan to Berwick Rangers in Scotland's League Two from Kilmarnock.
