Coronavirus continues to dominate after Scotland Under-19 coach Billy Stark tested positive for Covid-19 and it was revealed that Arsenal and Scotland defender Kieran Tierney had returned a positive test in August despite being asymptomatic.

Ryan Christie is also self-isolating along with a masseur and a member of the physiotherapy staff.
