SFA confirm Queen tribute ahead of Scotland v Ukraine clash at Hampden

A minute’s applause in memory of the Queen will be held before Scotland’s match against Ukraine at Hampden Park on Wednesday.

The Scottish FA submitted a request to UEFA for a pre-match tribute to be held in the wake of the Queen’s state funeral, which took place on Monday.

England have also made plans to honour the Queen when they take on Germany at Wembley and it has now been confirmed that a minute’s applause will take place at Hampden ahead of the Nations League fixture.

Tributes were paid to the Queen at football matches across the country over the weekend – but there were also disruptions with Dundee United fans booing and chanting during a minute’s silence before their match with Rangers at Ibrox on Saturday.

Celtic fans also unveiled a banner during the minute’s applause at St Mirren and chanted anti-monarchy songs.
