Saints defender earns international recall
1:38pm Thursday 7th March 2013 in Sport
The former St Mary’s boss has named Fox in his first competitive squad for World Cup qualifiers against Wales and Serbia.
Strachan sprang a major surprise by calling up Brighton midfielder Liam Bridcutt.
The 23-year-old Reading-born midfielder was joined by Dundee United winger Gary Mackay-Steven and Peterborough winger George Boyd in getting his first call-up.
Boyd, who is currently on loan at Hull, previously featured for Scotland B in 2009 but had never made a full squad.
There is no place for Rangers' Lee Wallace or Phil Bardsley, who has not played for Sunderland since January 19.
Blackpool winger Matt Phillips and QPR forward Jamie Mackie both drop out of the squad as does Celtic captain Scott Brown, whose season appears to be over because of an abductor injury.
In-form Hibernian striker Leigh Griffiths was not included but Chris Burke retains his place after Strachan handed him his first international cap in more than six years in the 1-0 friendly win over Estonia last month.
