Whilst it is, of course, a huge blow for Scotland, concern no doubt spread amongst the England fan base as well,
This came with the Three Lions having faced off with Scotland on Friday, a game which saw Gilmour starting.
It was reported earlier today that following Gilmour’s positive test, England players were all tested, with none returning a positive result at the time:
In light of Billy Gilmour’s positive Covid-19 test, all England players and staff returned negative results after a round of testing on Sunday.

Mason Mount & Ben Chilwell isolating after being in contact with Gilmour
This came as a big boost to England as their clash vs the Czech Republic remains a huge one, with Gareth Southgate’s side needing a win to top Group D.
Despite all players and staff returning a negative test, however, two England players are now being forced to isolate.
England confirmed in an official statement a short time ago that Ben Chilwell and Mason Mount are now isolating after being in contact with Gilmour. The pair’s potential involvement vs the Czech Republic is now seemingly up in the air.
It is added that the entire squad took more tests on Monday afternoon and once again returned negative results.
