Four Celtic players will be away from Parkhead during the international break and on international duty.
A number of Celtic fans have taken to Twitter to give their thoughts on the latest Scotland squad selection, which features four Hoops players.
Scotland travel to Cyprus for the game at the GPS Stadium on Saturday 16 November, 2pm kickoff, before returning to Glasgow on Tuesday 19 November for the clash with Kazakhstan at Hampden Park, 7.45pm kickoff.
Qualification via Group I is now out of reach for Scotland, who will contest the playoffs next March for a place at Euro 2020, and some Celtic fans were not best pleased with the prospect of their players being utilised for what one supporter described as "nothing games".
Here is some of the reaction on social media:

Withdraw them imo.— Connor (@_CLMike_) 5 November 2019
Time to give the players a rest. The Celtic guys are made scapegoats by the tartan army. Scott Brown was and how they miss him now.— Eddie van Coupon (@coupon_eddie) 5 November 2019
Nothing games. NL should say no— onlytheproudwalktall (@billybean1968) 5 November 2019
I don't think he actually can— Rosemary Lucas (@dollydimples88) 5 November 2019
Remember the hullabaloo with Tom Rogic? He was in the Aussie squad to play a friendly, went all the way there and wasn't chosen, but somehow managed to come back with an injury that kept him out for four months!!
Greg Taylor has played one game for Celtic, yet he is chosen for the Scotland squad. Just shows you how bad it really is!— Rosemary Lucas (@dollydimples88) 5 November 2019

Absolute Nonsense, Get KT back! , fit enough to play down there , fit enough to play for his own !— Clarabellabooo (@Clarabellabooo1) 5 November 2019
There has to be better options out there rather than Naismith— Joe Walker (@CelticWalks) 5 November 2019
Former Celtic man Kieran Tierney was expected to return to the Scotland fold after returning from injury to feature for Arsenal, but Clarke confirmed that the full-back has been left out of the squad at the Premier League club's request (BBC Sport).
