Still not for a whole 15 minutes I wouldn't think.

Not that the 15 minute thing makes any sense in the first place :))

Who knows mate. I don’t understand it all at the best of times and I’m not going to pretend I do :))

Looks like we've managed to avoid it again then. Worst case if our 3 were close contacts they'll need to isolate.

Am i missing something big here?

Why would our game not go ahead?

Just people being panic merchants mate.

To answer your question, it would require a large number of either squad to be out as per some of the postponements earlier in the season. Aberdeen are seemingly missing a handful but not enough for a postponement.

Confirmed in an aberdeen statement. They have one player positive and the other 2 players in the u21 squad are self isolating

They have their entire midfield out tomorrow, they will be left with Ojo and some youngsters

Still be a battle for us.
Hopefully this is the game we reach double figures in :))

The local press have named them as McLennan, Ferguson and McCrorie
In line with that, BBC site report says:
... Aberdeen have confirmed they will be without three squad members in total with two further players identified as close contacts.

So that sounds like it’s probably Ferguson McCrorie and McLennan.

Yeah, no doubt travelled up the road together.

I find it bizarre to be honest.

We are told to wear masks going into shops due to potentially catching it yet you can play football when you are breathing heavily/maybe even coughing/sweating/clearing nose etc when training. Teams are training as normal also so 2m rule doesn’t apply.

Plus going by Motherwell’s tweet, they only found out at 9:30pm last night. Celtic would have been in hotel by then, including Turnbull.

Outdoor training 'should' be fine, but aye if they were in hotels etc then it could be an issue.

The strange thing is, listening to Leitch today he says you dont know when you get it. You dont catch it and then next day bang you have symptoms, its a case of 7-10 days till you get symptoms.

Though the the SFA could have had the players for that long and are also responsible for the travel.

So, 2 x McCrorie’s and Turnbull are the positives. The eight isolating are Welsh (Celtic), Campbell and McGuire (Motherwell), Ferguson and MacLennan (Aberdeen) - plus 3 others. Who are the missing names I wonder?

Assuming Robbie McCrorie was the first identified.

This is exactly why international football should’ve been cancelled for the foreseeable

It’ll inevitably affect us at some point and there’s not much you can do to avoid it

Sellik FA seem to have problems with protocols. Not so long ago the U19 game against England got abandoned at half time with this and Stark sent home to isolate.

When was Ross McCrorie confirmed?
