CHARLIE ADAM IS back in the Scotland squad for next month’s Euro 2016 qualifier against Ireland at the Aviva Stadium.

Gordon Strachan’s side, currently two points ahead of Ireland in third place, visit Dublin to play a must-win game for Ireland on 13 June after facing Qatar in a friendly eight days earlier.

Stoke midfielder Adam hasn’t featured for the Scots since the 1-0 win over Poland in March 2014 but four Premier League goals in the past month, including a 65-yard lob against Chelsea, has prompted a recall.

Celtic pair Leigh Griffiths and Charlie Mulgrew also return, while Dundee goalkeeper Scott Bain has been called up for the first time.

Here’s the squad in full:


Scott Bain (Dundee), Craig Gordon (Celtic), David Marshall (Cardiff City).


Christophe Berra (Ipswich Town), Craig Forsyth (Derby County)
Gordon Greer (Brighton & Hove Albion), Alan Hutton (Aston Villa), Russell Martin (Norwich City) Charlie Mulgrew (Celtic), Mark Reynolds (Aberdeen)
Andrew Robertson (Hull City), Steven Whittaker (Norwich City).


Charlie Adam (Stoke City), Ikechi Anya (Watford), Barry Bannan (Crystal Palace)
Scott Brown (Celtic), Darren Fletcher (West Bromwich Albion)
James Forrest (Celtic), Shaun Maloney (Chicago Fire), James Morrison (West Bromwich Albion), James McArthur (Crystal Palace), Matt Ritchie (Bournemouth).


Steven Fletcher (Sunderland), Leigh Griffiths (Celtic), Steven Naismith (Everton)
Johnny Russell (Derby County).
