A first-team player of Inverness Caledonian Thistle is in self-isolation after showing symptoms associated with COVID-19, as reported by BBC Sport.

The Championship side are currently awaiting the results of the unidentified player’s test.

Apparently, he did not train with the rest of his teammates on Friday. It is unclear at which point he began his period of isolation.

The development comes after the SPFL took the decision to suspend all football in Scotland until further notice, following the Premier League and English Football League this morning.

There are yet to be any confirmed cases of coronavirus in Scottish football.

Prior to the stoppage of footballing activity, Inverness were going well in second place in Scotland’s second tier.

John Robertson’s team sit some way behind leaders Dundee United, but have a healthy eight-point lead over fifth-placed side Dunfermline Athletic and are on course to finish in the play-off places when the season resumes, whenever that may be.
