THE LARK SAINT

Covid outbreak at Mcdiarmid

Recommended Posts

CD naturally giving nothing away, so I don't think that we'll get a great deal more info. We know who the 4 were, so they should be available for the final, and those that could play v Tic,  probably left out as a precaution. Folk have noted Zander & Gordon had injuries, so maybe that stopped them being named. Which leaves a further 2. All sounds a bit last minute, which is a worry. We can but guess and hope 5 or so players available for Livi. Training is the issue now.

His interview after the Celtic game suggests that Zander is isolating. He says he is also out for Saturday but will be okay for final.

Not sure what the plans are for preparing for the Cup final, but I'd say as soon as the Livi game's over the whole squad should isolate at a training camp together so that they can get ready for the final in one big bubble. Obviously there'd be big cost implications of doing that though.

Was just wondering last night, does anyone know who actually gets into games at the moment? Obviously club staff and officials, emergency services, media and possibly scouts/representatives from other clubs. Are sponsors/corporate types getting in too?

Last night when Scott Brown was taken off the commentator mentioned that he was looking up towards his gathered family in the stand. So are players' families going to games too? I'd thought player comps weren't being permitted, so that surprised me.

I am sure because such a special person was leaving Celtic ,they would make a concession.

Either that or Celtic don't give a shit about rules.

The problem with that is that you could just take the virus in there as it must have been within the squad at Sundays match. Interesting if it was as a team local to us have all just been put in isolation as one of the opponents on saturday tested positive on Monday. Even the ref has to isolate .

I think there is a total of about 350 allowed in under lots of different roles. There was a breakdown of permitted numbers on one of the other posts.

Is Clark not assistant manager at a QoS so would be able to get in under the scouting rule think there are so many scouts tickets allowed.

It’s hard not to fear the worst.

I just can’t believe the timing of it. If it had happened during a peak then ok, but we’re coming out of lockdown, cases down massively etc... makes it harder to take.

The only positive maybe, is the late stage of the season. Most players have trained/played all season so should be fit. Not like it’s pre-season.

The Football Club can today confirm that we face an ongoing situation with Covid-19 and the self-isolation process.

We are in constant dialogue with the SFA and the Scottish Government about this current situation. 

As always, the health and wellbeing of everyone at the Football Club will be our priority. 

On a positive note, we are delighted to welcome back a number of our senior players into the group and they will be available for selection against Livingston on Saturday.

We will keep our supporters updated if we need to share further information.

Callum and the players will now focus on Saturday's vital game and we also look forward to the Scottish Cup Final.

I wonder how many of the Rangers idiots will catch covid.

As usual Rangers did nothing to stop it, in fact they virtually  encouraged it.

looking at the pictures of George Square there is very little social distancing going on
