SCOTLAND’s crucial Euro 2020 play-off clash against Israel has been postponed further by bosses at UEFA.

The original Hampden match was pencilled in for March 26, but was put back until June 4 due to the coronavirus outbreak putting football into shutdown mode.

And now a UEFA statement has revealed that the match has been postponed until further notice due to the ongoing pandemic.

The statement said: "All national team matches for men and women due to be played in June 2020 are postponed until further notice. This includes the play-off matches for UEFA EURO 2020 and qualifying matches for UEFA Women’s EURO 2021.

"All other UEFA competition matches, including the centralised international friendly matches, remain postponed until further notice.

"The deadlines related to all 2020/21 UEFA club competitions are postponed until further notice, in particular as regards the admission process and the registration of players. UEFA will set new deadlines in due course."

Steve Clarke's Scots are set to welcome the Israelis to Hampden and if victorious will travel to either Norway or Serbia for a one off match for a spot at the Euros.
