Owls striker Stevie May has today won his first senior Scotland call-up.

The forward, who has notched three goals since joining Sheffield Wednesday at the start of the new Championship season, is in Gordon Strachan’s squad for the European Championship qualifiers against Georgia and Poland next month.

Strachan watched May open his Hillsborough account in their victory over Reading 10 days ago.

Ryan Gauld, now at Sporting Lisbon, has also been named in a 27-man squad along with former Wednesday player Mark Reynolds, who is among just three Scottish-based players in the pool alongside Celtic pair Craig Gordon and Scott Brown.

Scotland entertain Georgia in the first of the Group D double-header at Ibrox on Saturday October 11. Strachan’s side then travel toWarsaw for a midweek encounter with Poland four days later.

Defenders: Christophe Berra (Ipswich Town), Craig Forsyth (Derby County), Gordon Greer (Brighton and Hove Albion), Grant Hanley (Blackburn Rovers). Alan Hutton (Aston Villa), Russell Martin (Norwich City), Mark Reynolds (Aberdeen), Andrew Robertson (Hull City), Steven Whittaker (Norwich City)
