GLASGOW City Council has said that the choice to play Scotland's Euro matches in the classroom will be up to individual schools. 

School students across the city have pleaded with teachers to be able to watch Scotland's first match at a major tournament in 23 years. 

Scotland will begin their Euro 2020 campaign against the Czech Republic at 2pm on Monday.

A council spokeswoman said: “There has been no directive from head office about watching football matches. 

"Schools will make a decision themselves and whether it fits into a particular learning experience for their young people.” 

The call comes after SFA boss chief executive Ian Maxwell also wrote to Scottish education secretary, Shirley-Anne Somerville, to ask that school students be able to watch their favourite football stars take part in the tournament.
