Jack Ross: 'Hibernian will continue to respect the rules'

:Headline: Jack Ross: 'Hibernian will continue to respect the rules':
First Minister Nicola Sturgeon issued a "yellow card" to the game after pandemic measures were ignored by players from Aberdeen and Celtic.

Hibernian head coach Jack Ross trusts his players to follow the coronavirus protocols after Scottish football received a final warning from the government.

First Minister Nicola Sturgeon issued a “yellow card” to the game after breaches of rules from eight Aberdeen players and Celtic defender Boli Bolingoli led to the postponement of several of the two clubs’ games.

The Scottish Government had warned of a potential suspension of action on the morning of Hibernian’s 1-0 win over Dundee United after news broke of Bolingoli’s flying visit to Spain days before he played against Kilmarnock.

Sports minister Joe Fitzpatrick said: “A lot of work has gone on behind the scenes during these past months to create the protocols and testing regimes that have allowed top level professional football in Scotland to resume, without putting the public or others at unnecessary risk.

“It is up to the football authorities, clubs and individuals within those clubs to take responsibility to ensure that these protocols are followed rigorously. Unfortunately, over the past few weeks, we have seen multiple  examples where that hasn’t happened.

“This latest example indicates that the current arrangements are not working as intended, and so clearly additional steps now need to be taken to ensure that the necessity of strict compliance with the rules is fully and properly understood.”

Police Scotland revealed in a statement that a fixed penalty notice had been issued to Bolingoli for breaching quarantine regulations.
