There was concern in the Scotland camp on Monday as captain Andy Robertson received treatment during a training session, just four days before they begin their Euro 2024 campaign.

The Liverpool left-back did not complete the session, which was open to the public, neither did Hearts striker Lawrence Shankland.

It was during a warm-up drill for the Scots that there was cause for concern for Robertson, with physios rushing on to attend to him and the 30-year-old leaving the session.

However, while it is a serious scare given his quality, Robertson did not appear to be in too much discomfort after leaving the session and was reportedly in good spirits soon after.

The Guardian reports that the Scottish Football Association suggest it was just a precautionary move, with such a big game now just days away.

Assistant manager John Carver is set to address the media on Monday lunchtime, so updates on Robertson and Shankland can be expected in due course.

Manager Steve Clarke has already had a number of injury headaches ahead of the tournament, with Lyndon Dykes and Ben Boak ruled out, while Lewis Ferguson, Aaron Hickey, Nathan Patterson and Jacob Brown have also missed out.

Scotland take on Germany on Friday night, before facing Switzerland next Wednesday and their final group game coming against Hungary on Sunday 23 June.

In Scotland’s final warm-up game for the tournament, a 2-2 draw with Finland, Robertson captained the team for the 49th time, which set a record for the ment’s national team.

Robertson posted on social media: ‘To captain Scotland once was a dream come true. To surpass the record set by the great George Young is surreal and humbling.

‘I am so grateful to Alex McLeish for having the faith in me to do it in the first place and of course to Steve Clarke for his continued support.

‘We are ready, you are ready, let’s go and give it everything we’ve got.’
