Fans are unlikely to return to Scottish sports grounds in the near future, following an announcement by First Minister Nicola Sturgeon.

An indicative date of October 5 had been earmarked for the start of a phased reintroduction, with that having already been pushed back by three weeks.

After announcing new restrictions on hospitality and household interaction, Sturgeon told the Scottish Parliament: “It’s important that I indicate, in light of the current situation, that the route map changes with an indicative date of October 5, are unlikely now to go ahead on that time scale.”
