Kieran Tierney has left the Scotland Euro 2024 camp through a hamstring injury.

The Arsenal defender was stretchered off after a nasty knock against Switzerland on Wednesday.

And Scotland assistant John Carver has confirmed Tierney's tournament is over with the player heading back to England for an assessment. 

On the cruel injury blow, Carver explained: "He was stretchered off the other night. He's got an issue with his hamstring and as we speak he is heading home to be assessed by Arsenal.

"That is all I can say at the moment."

On Tierney's reaction to the horror blow, Carver added: "He's obviously extremely disappointed.

"If we do progress and move through the tournament I'm sure Kieran will be back to support us. But he's a young lad, he's got plenty of time.

"It's a blow because he's one of our top players and in tournament football you need your best players on the park.

"In particular he gives us great balance down the left hand side, he combines really well with Andy Robertson and Callum McGregor.

"But it's an opportunity for somebody else to step in."
