Kiran Tierni has eliminated any concerns about fitness during his first practice session in Scotland this week.
The Arsenal left-back has not played since October 18 but has fully recovered from an ankle injury sustained in Scotland’s World Cup qualifier against Moldova on Friday.
Speaking at the Spanish training camp in La Finca, near Alicante, John Carver said: “It was a good morning, full of running.
“It’s been a while now but he was on a bench over the weekend and he came to the camp and had a really good experience. We don’t see any problem with him.”
Scotland manager Steve Clark Grant Hanley and Ryan Fraser named the squad after last week’s two-legged win over Moldova and Denmark.
The coach said in a recent international match that he had returned to training three years after being sent off against Israel.
Carver added: “I really went to the game with Dandi United on Saturday and he was fantastic. All the men knew him, but he came in immediately.
“This is a perfect match.
“I think I watched the game and he gave the ball once in 95 minutes. That is what surprised me the most. Because if we are called to play that place on Monday night, we are going to catch the ball and he has to come in and catch the ball.
“When I looked at him, that was on my mind. It fits perfectly with the system we play, so it fits perfectly.
Stoke striker Jacob Brown was called up for the first time since Linden Dyks and Ryan Christie were suspended for Friday’s game, and Carver felt rushed.
“He’s a very good boy, he’s a quiet boy, but he’s really well-rounded,” he said. “He did his first real training session today and we liked what we saw. He’s different, he’s got a change of pace, but he’s directly in the team and that doesn’t surprise me because they make him feel very important.
“In the past I was in clubs with new players and it was hard to join. As soon as he entered the door, everyone was around and made him feel his body.
“All the staff knew him and I had a good discussion with him about his story and where he came from and the different coaches he works with. It’s important to feel comfortable being called up to the national team at a young age.”
