Owls striker Stevie May has been named in the Scotland squad for the upcoming matches with Northern Ireland and Gibraltar.

May - who scored in Saturday’s draw with Fulham - has been mainly used as a substitute for Wednesday over the month but has retained his place in his national squad.

Wednesday head coach Stuart Gray said: “I’m delighted for Stevie [May]. Playing four your country is the pinnacle of your career. His international debut was against England so he’s obviously done something right.”

Scotland host Northern Ireland in a friendly next Wednesday, March 25, before welcoming Gibraltar in a Euro 2016 qualifier on March 29.

Former Owls full back Mark Reynolds - now with Aberdeen - is also in the squad.
