Celtic defender Adam Matthews has been ruled out of Wales' World Cup qualifier with Scotland on Friday evening.

"He has not played for two or three weeks with his ankle and he hasn't done anything with us all week" - Chris Coleman
The 20-year-old has repeatedly missed being involved in training this week due to an ongoing ankle injury.

However, Welsh manager Chris Coleman was remaining hopeful that the former Cardiff City full-back would recover in time for the game in Croatia on Tuesday night.

"Adam is a problem. He has not played for two or three weeks with his ankle and he hasn't done anything with us all week," Coleman confirmed to Wales Online. "We think tomorrow is a no but he may have a chance for Tuesday."

But in more positive news for the Welsh, key midfielder Gareth Bale has been declared available following a recent heel injury.
