Jordan Rhodes has been recalled to the Scotland Under-21 squad for the forthcoming European Championship qualifier with Bulgaria.
The Huddersfield Town striker was rested for the friendly with Italy in late April but has been included again by Billy Stark for the Group 10 match.
Rhodes comes back into the fold despite having club games left to play, with Huddersfield set to face MK Dons in the League One play-off semi-finals.
"The timing of the game is not one you would particularly want, a couple of weeks after the end of the season," said Stark.
"Jordan is involved in play-offs and you're ready to deal with euphoria or abject disappointment depending on how it goes.
"But he's such a level-headed boy that he will be fine and he's desperate to contribute to our cause."
Jordan Archer, Steven Saunders, Tom Cairney and Gregg Wylde are also back in the squad, with Matthew Edwards, Rhys McCabe, Islam Feruz, Alex MacDonald and Dylan McGeouch dropping out.
Scotland are currently in second spot in their group, one point behind the Netherlands, with three fixtures left to play.
