Five footballers from the Scottish club Glasgow Rangers were expelled from the team for violating coronavirus rules.

They have also received financial penalties from the management and the club will negotiate further steps with the national association and the Scottish Government. According to local media, the players took part in a banned party over the weekend, which ended with a police intervention. Coach Steven Gerrard named the players' club television and condemned their behavior. These are the Bongani Zungu Quintet, Nathan Patterson, Calvin Bassey, Dapo Mebude and Brian Kinnear.

The incident forced the country's Prime Minister, Nicola Sturgeon, to call on Scottish football "to clean up the house." "First we have to realize that five of our players have broken the covid rules and we are very angry. We will deal with it internally, they will be fined and we have all expelled from the team for a while. We will also negotiate with the Scottish Government and SFA about the future of these boys." said Gerrard.
