Former Republic of Ireland defender Steven Reid will join the coaching staff of Scotland under new manager Steve Clarke.

Reid, who won 23 caps for Ireland between 2001 and 2008, has previously worked with Clarke at Reading and had most recently been employed as a coach at West Brom.

Scotland manager Clarke confirmed his coaching staff while announcing his squad for June's European Championship qualifiers against Cyprus and Belgium.

"I'm going to bring Steven Reid in," Clarke said. "Steven is a coach I know and I think it's important for me that I go into the first camp comfortable with the staff who are with me - staff who understand how I work."

Reid will be joined by Kilmarnock's Alex Dyer who will be Clarke's assistant manager, while Stevie Woods will remain within his role as Scotland goalkeeping coach.

"Alex Dyer will be with me," Clarke explained. "He will stay at Kilmarnock to do his job but he will be with us in the camps. Alex has committed until the end of Euro 2020."
