    Defender Liam Scales celebrates after Celtic's 3-0 win over Raith RoversScales made his Celtic debut in last month's Scottish League Cup win over Raith Rovers

    Celtic defender Liam Scales has replaced the injured Ryan Manning in the Republic of Ireland squad.

    Scales, 23, linked up with the squad on Wednesday before they travelled to Baku where they will face Azerbaijan in a World Cup qualifier.

    The Under-21 international made his first appearance for his new club in Celtic's 3-0 Scottish League Cup win over Raith Rovers on 23 September.

    He joined the Glasgow side from Shamrock Rovers in the summer.

    The Republic travel to Azerbaijan without captain Seamus Coleman, knowing their chances of reaching next year's World Cup are already over having taken two points from five qualifying matches.

    Scales will be hoping to make his senior debut either on Saturday or three days later when the Republic return home to host Qatar in Dublin.
