Euro 2024: Scotland’s Robertson declared fit after injury scare


Scotland assistant John Carver reassured everyone that Andy Robertson would recover after he suffered a fall during Monday morning’s training session.

Concerns arose among Scotland’s coaching staff when Robertson had to be escorted away from the training ground in Garmisch-Partenkirchen.

Given Scotland’s recent run of injuries, which sidelined Nathan Patterson, Ben Doak, Aaron Hickey, Jacob Brown, and Lewis Ferguson from the trip to Germany, the prospect of losing their captain added to the mounting worries as Scotland prepares for their European Championship opener against the host nation.

Carver said, “It was a precaution, really. The ball just caught his ankle but he will train tomorrow; he will be fine.

Obviously, at this stage, we are going to be extra cautious. But he is ok; he is fine, and we look forward to him joining back in tomorrow.”

Striker Lawrence Shankland was also notably absent from this morning’s training session after picking up a “niggle” in Scotland’s 2-2 draw with Finland last week.

“Obviously, he had quite a lot of game time in the two friendlies he played so we are just protecting him,” Carver said of Shankland. “Everybody has their own programme when they are coming back but he is fine; he is good.
