Kilmarnock striker Kevin Kyle has been ruled out of Scotland's double header with Macedonia and the Netherlands after sustaining a knee injury, reports The Scotsman. Killie boss Jim Jefferies said: "He went for an operation on Friday on a cartilage. We hoped it would recover in time and the swelling would go down in time for today's game. But it proved to be a tear.

"It's a blow for us, it's a blow for him, it might be a blow for Scotland."
