Andy Robertson Scotland injury update as Lawrence Shankland situation explained

Andy Robertson will be fine to train with Scotland tomorrow after bowing out of today's session early.

The skipper sparked injury fears when he seemed to take a knock this morning before leaving the training pitch and being tended to by physios. But he was seen laughing and joking at the side and it has emerged it was all done as a precaution ahead of Friday's big opener against Germany.

Assistant boss John Carver has now been quizzed at today's press conference and said: "He's fine, I've just spoken to him. It was just a precaution really, the ball just caught his ankle. But he'll train tomorrow and he'll be fine. Obviously at this stage we're going to be extra cautious. But he's okay and looking forward to joining in tomorrow."

Asked if there was a moment of panic when Robertson hit the deck, he added: "It's never nice, is it? Especially with the luck we've had lately. As soon as training was finished I went to see him and he's in good form."

Lawrence Shankland was another who didn't complete the session and went inside before Robertson. Carver insists they are just managing his load after he played the majority of the friendlies against Gibraltar and Finland.

He explained: "He had a little bit of a niggle from the other night, and obviously he played quite a bit of game time in the two games, so we're just protecting him as well. And everybody has got their own programme. So he's fine, everybody is fine."

Meanwhile, Stuart Armstrong will join in with his teammates tomorrow after doing solo running today.
