Billy Gilmour has tested positive for coronavirus and is out of Scotland’s crucial Euro 2020 group match against Croatia on Tuesday night.

Gilmour is now required to self-isolate for ten days.

The Scottish Football Association said in a statement on Monday morning: “We can confirm Billy Gilmour has tested positive for Covid-19.

“Having liaised with Public Health England, Billy will now self-isolate for ten days and therefore miss tomorrow’s UEFA EURO 2020 Group D match against Croatia at Hampden.”

Gilmour was a standout performer for Steve Clarke’s side in Friday night’s 0-0 draw against England at Wembley.

No other players have been affected or identified as close contacts, meaning all will be available for action on Tuesday.

Meanwhile, England’s 26-man squad have all returned negative Covid-19 results ahead of their clash with the Czech Republic.
