GLASGOW: Billy Gilmour has tested positive for Covid-19 and will miss Scotland’s Euro 2020 match with Croatia on Tuesday.
Chelsea’s Gilmour was outstanding as Steve Clarke’s side drew 0-0 with England on Friday – the midfielder’s first Scotland start.
Scotland must beat Croatia at Hampden to progress from Group D.
Both sides have a point after two matches while England and Czech Republic are on four points ahead of their meeting at Wembley.
“The Scottish FA can confirm that a member of the Scotland national team playing squad, Billy Gilmour, has tested positive for Covid-19,” the SFA said.
“Having liaised with Public Health England since the positive test was recorded, Billy will now self-isolate for 10 days and therefore miss tomorrow’s UEFA Euro 2020 Group D match against Croatia at Hampden.”
