The Scotland manager Steve Clarke and captain Andy Robertson have explained the team WILL take the knee against racism when they meet England on June 18.

Clarke added: "I am aware that some individuals and groups have sought to politicise or misrepresent the Scotland National Team position on taking a stand against racism and all forms of discriminatory behaviour in our UEFA EURO 2020 matches and, in particular, for our visit to Wembley.

"But it is also clear, given the events around the England national team, taking the knee in this tournament matters as a symbol of solidarity.

It was our collective view that the national team would do the same.

Meaningful action is needed if meaningful change is to occur.

The national manager railed against "individuals and groups" who have "misrepresented" the position of not taking the knee which was first decided in March before their World Cup qualifiers against Austria and Israel.

But their stance on standing against bigotry remains the same and the pair have explained they will not repeat the gesture in their other Euro 2020 matches.
