SCOTLAND midfielder Billy Gilmour has been ruled out of Tuesday night's must-win clash at Euro 2020 after testing positive for Covid-19.

The 20-year-old playmaker was handed his full debut by Steve Clarke at Wembley as the Scots ground out a goalless draw and was named man of the match.

Scotland know that nothing less than a win over Croatia will do if they are to reach the knockout stages of a tournament for the first time, and that task has now been made more arduous with Gilmour's absence.

The Chelsea player is now self-isolating for 10 days - meaning that should Scotland qualify for the last 16, he would still be unavailable.
