Celtic and the Rangers players told not to shake hands due to Coronavirus fears

We’re starting to see the Coronavirus affect football matches in several European countries, but it seems the only shut down in Scotland for now will be on handshakes.

It’s easy to make light of it but it’s also a very important problem, so any advice or guidelines do need to be followed.

In fairness most of the advice seems to be things like wash your hands and stay clean, so it’s alarming that people haven’t been doing that in the first place.

In terms of the knock on effects for Celtic, Glasgowlive have pointed out that the SFA have written to clubs to ask them not to shake hands before or after the game, and that will include Celtic’s trip to Ibrox in March.

That’s not to say there shouldn’t be any signs of respect or sportsmanship between the sides, the league is basically over so perhaps a guard of honour for the Champions would make more sense anyway?
