SCOTTISH football clubs have been left in limbo as Scottish Government vaccine passport plans have not yet been confirmed.

The Joint Response Group provided an update on discussions over how checks would be carried out when the scheme comes into force from October 1.

And the statement revealed Scottish Government representatives said they were unable to provide details on how the vaccine passports checks would work.

The JRG "reiterated concern" at the lack of details and confirmed spot checks would be the preferred option instead of mandatory checks for all fans at stadia with more than 10,000 fans.

Yesterday, SFA chief Ian Maxwell said complete checks would be "counterproductive" and only cause further social interaction outside of football grounds.

And despite the continued discussions with the government, there has still been little clarity on the implementation plans.

The JRG statement read: "Members of the Joint Response Group have attended numerous Scottish Government-led COVID-19 domestic vaccine certification meetings, two of which took place this afternoon, to update relevant industry sectors on the implementation plans for the imminent vaccine certification roll-out.

"The JRG reiterated its view that a system of spot-checks is the only pragmatic and workable solution to the numerous practical challenges surrounding implementation of the Scottish Government’s plans within Scottish football.

"The JRG sought clarity on the operational detail which clubs, football bodies and stadium operators will be expected to implement from 1st October.

"At both meetings, the Scottish Government representatives acknowledged they were not yet in a position to provide the detail necessary for clubs to begin their implementation planning.

"With just over two weeks until the system is scheduled to commence in football stadia across the country, we reiterated our concern at the lack of detail available and reinforced the requirement that this information be confirmed as soon as possible."
