Ms Sturgeon said: “We’ve seen people go above and beyond to help others.

“Scotland's football fans are a great example of that.

“Across the country fans have come together to raise funds in support of their clubs.

“That’s helped many of our football clubs cope with the financial impact of this crisis and it has quite literally helped to save people’s jobs.
