Liam Cooper to miss Scotland matches

Captain to remain at Thorp Arch.

Leeds United captain Liam Cooper will not link up with Scotland for their forthcoming international matches after picking up an injury in Saturday’s Sky Bet Championship clash with Blackburn Rovers at Elland Road.

Cooper had to be withdrawn in the 72nd minute of the match and scans following the game have shown a small tear in his groin area.

The injury is not considered to be major and he will work with staff at Thorp Arch with a view to being fit following the international break.
