This evening it has been revealed that fellow Scottish Premier League side St Mirren have received several positive Coronavirus tests, forcing the whole club into lockdown until further testing is carried out.

As reported by the Daily Record, it is thought that seven of the backroom staff at the Paisley side, have tested positive for the virus.

The Buddies were set to face Livingston in their first game of the season, on the 1st of August. The Paisley side were also set to face Celtic in their third game of the season on Wednesday 12th of August.

Of course, St Mirren also faced off against Hamilton Accies, just a couple of days ago. In 10 days, the Bhoys will be facing off against Accies. So this could cause a whole load of complications.

This has put St Mirren into limbo as pre-season training and preparation for the new season, will not be able to continue until further testing has taken place on the players and remaining coaching staff.

The outbreak between the St Mirren backroom staff is the first outbreak we have seen within a team in Scotland. This just serves as a warning that clubs must stick to the rules, to get back playing football again.
