The Scottish Football Association has confirmed that a minute of applause will be held in honor of the Queen ahead of Wednesday’s match against Ukraine.
The SFA received authorization from UEFA to carry out the tribute in what is the country’s first game since the Queen’s death.
This comes after a weekend of interruptions to tributes in the Scottish Premiership, with the SFA opting for one-minute cheers at Hampden rather than a period of silence following disturbances ahead of games at Rangers and Hibernian.
The Premiership gave clubs the option to choose whether and how to pay tribute, but the silence at Ibrox was interrupted by boos and chants from Dundee United fans.
Meanwhile, some Celtic fans chanted “If you hate the royal family, clap your hands” after St Mirren decided to applaud a minute before the match in Paisley on Sunday, defying calls from his manager Ange Postecoglou to be “respectful” during any tributes. .
England will hold a minute’s silence before their home game against Germany at Wembley, after also receiving UEFA’s approval. The Premier League maintained periods of silence before all seven matches played over the past weekend.
Uefa also allowed a minute’s silence before Rangers’ Champions League match against Napoli last week, at what was the first Glasgow club after the Queen’s death.
European football’s governing body decided not to punish Rangers after ‘God Save the King’ was sung by fans, despite the club not being allowed to play the national anthem before the match.
Celtic face disciplinary proceedings, however, after their fans displayed a banner “F*** the Crown” before their match against Shakhtar Donetsk in Warsaw.
