Scotland manager Steve Clarke says Chelsea star Billy Gilmour is ‘fine’ after being substituted with a head knock during a friendly win over Luxembourg.

Che Adams’ strike was enough to win Scotland’s final warm-up match pre-Euro 2020 1-0. But there was concern for Gilmour after an impressive cameo from the bench at half-time, Sebastien Thill clattering into him and forcing the Chelsea kid off with a head knock.

He was replaced by James Forrest but Clarke says that the midfielder will be ok, pending inspection from the medical team: “The good news is Billy is fine – we took him off as a precaution. The doctors will monitor him over the next few days. He’s a tough boy, he comes from Ardrossan.”

 

Scotland’s Euro 2020 campaign kicks off against Czech Republic on June 14th, the first major tournament for the nation since 1998.
