Scott Brown will captain Scotland in their friendly clash with Estonia on Wednesday

Celtic skipper Brown will lead out the team for the first time ahead of Wednesday night's friendly against Estonia at Pittodrie.

"He already knows what it's like to be a captain with pressure and that made him favourite," Strachan told a press conference in Aberdeen.

Gary Caldwell and Kenny Miller have shared captaincy duties in the absence of Darren Fletcher, who is battling a chronic bowel condition, but Caldwell has returned to Wigan with an injury and 33-year-old Miller is unlikely to start as the Vancouver Whitecaps striker is in the midst of his close season.
