McLeish's side are looking to win consecutive matches for the first time since October 2017 when they won three in a row under Gordon Strachan.

Israel have lost their last four games, but McLeish is wary of the threat they pose, saying: "The word is they're much better at home than they are away from home.

Scotland's traveling party were without Leigh Griffiths after the Celtic striker claimed he withdrew from the squad due to fitness concerns.

Griffiths was left out of McLeish's starting line-up for their most recent match against Albania, leading to suggestions he had withdrawn from this month's squad due to his unhappiness at that decision.

McLeish, who has won just two of his first six games with Scotland in his second stint, has moved to reassure the 28-year-old that he has not jeopardized his selection in future squads.

Almost half a century has drifted by since the Middle-Eastern nation competed at their only finals, the 1970 World Cup in Mexico. Since then, it has been consistent, and in many cases abject, failure.

In August, the Israeli FA made the controversial decision to appoint Austrian football legend Andi Herzog as their new national coach.
