FANS watching Scotland at the Euros will not be allowed to listen to one of their favourite songs, 'I'm Gonna Be' (500 miles) due to fears they may get too excited.

The Scottish hit is understood to be part of a number of DJ playlist tunes banned by organisers of the Glasgow event due to Covid restrictions, according to reports in The Daily Record. 

UEFA have also given bagpipes the red card over concerns that they could help spread the virus. 

Those attending the fanzone at Glasgow Green have been urged to get covid tests before and after matches.

The outdoor viewing space is set to open on Friday for 31 days with Scotland's first game taking place on Monday against the Czech Republic.

The national team celebrated securing their spot at the tournament by dancing to 70s classic disco tune 'Yes Sir, I Can Boogie'. 

Paul Goodwin, of the Scottish Football Supporters Association, said: "Scotland might have been catapulted to the tournament on the back of 'Yes Sir, I Can Boogie' but it seems to be turning into 'No Sir, you can't party'. 

"This seems to be organised with the best of intentions. But all these rules are likely to be tossed out the window as soon as Scotland score."

Until five years ago the Proclaimers hit was played any time Scotland scored at Hampden.

Fans were issued a warning yesterday that they cannot ignore social distancing rules. 

It comes as we reported that the National Clinical Director for Scotland, Jason Leitch, had cast new doubts over whether the event would go ahead due to rising covid cases in the city. 

The professor said that the inclusion of a beer garden was an area of concern.
