Scottish left back Kieran Tierney has been ruled out of the Euro 2024 after he suffered a hamstring injury.

The player has returned to Arsenal due to the hamstring injury.

Tierney was taken off the pitch in the 1-1 draw against Switzerland on Wednesday, June 19, 2024. Scott McKenna was brought in to replace Tierney in the closing stage of the game.

He will play no part in the qualifier decided against Hungary on Sunday, June 23, 2024.

Scotland national team assistant manager John Carver revealed the extent of the Tierney injury in a press conference. The assistant manager said, “He’s got an issue with his hamstring, and as we speak, he’s heading home to be assessed by Arsenal.”

“That’s all I can say. They will be able to give updates when they have them. He became disappointed. If we do progress through the tournament, I’m sure he will be back to support us.”

“But he’s a young lad; he’s got time, and he needs to make sure it is right for his return. It’s a blow because he is one of our top players. At tournament football, you need your best players on the field.”

“In particular, with him, he gives us balance on the left with Andy Robertson and Callum McGregor. They combine really well. So when any team loses its best players, it will affect the situation.”

The Scotland national team must defeat Hungary to proceed to the next round of the tournament. If they defeat the Hungarians, it will be the first time the Scotland national team qualify for the knockout stage of the tournament.

The Scotland national team will be without first-team defenders like Aaron Hickey and Nathan Paterson. The Scotland national team will be going into the final group stage game with confidence and enthusiasm.
