Scotland players will “stand up to racism” at Euro 2020 rather than ‘take the knee’ before their matches.
In March, the squad switched to standing for the start of their World Cup qualifying campaign after head coach Steve Clarke said he believed the knee gesture had become “a little bit diluted”.
The move followed a number of Scottish Premiership clubs changing their gestures in a bid to reinforce the anti-racism message.
A statement from the Scottish Football Association read:
‘The squad, coaching staff and backroom members will stand up to racism ahead of the Group D matches against Czech Republic, England and Croatia.’
Captain Andy Robertson said:
“It is important we continue to tackle the issue of racism and raise awareness of the need to change people’s mindsets but also their behaviours.
England players are expected to ‘take the knee’ ahead of their games. Some fans booed the gesture before warm-up games last week against Austria and Romania at the Riverside Stadium in Middlesbrough.
