Bologna full-back Aaron Hickey could gain his first Scotland Under-21 cap at his former home ground next month after being recalled to Scot Gemmill's squad.

The ex-Hearts defender was last called up to the U21 set-up just under a year ago, but pulled out due to injury.

The 19-year-old scored his first goal for the Serie A club on Tuesday in a 2-2 draw with Genoa.

Gemmill's side started their Euro 2023 qualifying campaign with a 1-1 draw in Turkey last month.

Hickey is joined by Aberdeen's Calvin Ramsay, Hibernian's Josh Doig and Celtic duo Adam Montgomery and Stephen Welsh in the 23-man squad for the clash against Denmark at Tynecastle on 7 October.

BBC Scotland will be broadcasting all of the Scotland U21 qualifying matches.
