Breaking news

Eleven Scotland Under-21 players and two backroom staff are self-isolating after three of the players tested positive for Covid-19.

The Scottish FA confirmed the measures to be taken after the squad returned on Wednesday following their defeat in Greece on Tuesday.

The three players who returned positive tests have to isolate for 10 days from Friday 20 November.

The 10 close contacts must do likewise for 14 days, also starting Friday.

“The close contacts were established using aircraft and bus manifests, in adherence to government protocols that consider close contacts to be two rows either side of a positive case,” said the SFA in a statement.
