SCOTLAND'S players will not take the knee during their Euro 2020 clashes but instead will stand against racism before kick-off.

The SFA confirmed their support for the players and coaching staff this afternoon.

A statement read: "The Scotland Men’s National Team will continue to take a stand against racism prior to kick-off for all UEFA EURO 2020 matches.

The squad, coaching staff and backroom members will stand up to racism ahead of the Group D matches against Czech Republic, England and Croatia."

It comes amid controversy surrounding supporters down south who, during friendlies, have booed their England stars taking the knee in the fight against racism.

Andy Robertson, Scotland captain, explained their decision, saying: “It is important we continue to tackle the issue of racism and raise awareness of the need to change people’s mindsets but also their behaviours.

“Prior to our World Cup qualifiers in March we spoke as a group and felt that taking a stand was the best way for us to show solidarity and also to reinforce the need for meaningful change in society.”

We told earlier this season how Rangers players decided not to take the knee during their own fight to stamp out racism.
