PlayStation cost Kieran Tierney in Scotland Covid-19 saga as Arsenal demand probe

Celtic and Arsenal have called for a government probe concerning Ryan Christie and Kieran Tierney.

The key Scotland duo have been forced to isolate because they took part in a PlayStation session with Stuart Armstrong, who had tested postive for Covid-19 before their crunch European Championship play-off semi-final against Israel.

The pair have stated that they did not share a controller and followed social distancing protocols for the entire period, but that won’t stop them from missing crucial club fixtures.

It is understood that they have both now been sent away from the squad, and their clubs want answers.
