The Scottish Football Association confirmed the QPR player had withdrawn through injury on their official Twitter account.

Gary Mackay-Steven and Craig Conway were called up earlier in the week after wide men James Forrest and Chris Burke pulled out.

Phillips, who has two caps, was recalled to the squad after missing the finale to Scotland's World Cup qualifying campaign following a broken arm.

Scotland manager Gordon Strachan called up in-form Leeds forward Ross McCormack on Wednesday night after Blackburn striker Jordan Rhodes pulled out with a training-ground knock.

McCormack has scored six goals in two games for Leeds and was initially omitted as Strachan sought to have a look at the likes of Phillips.
