Scotland are based in the southern German town as their base for Euro 2024, with preparations being ramped up ahead of the tournament opener against the hosts on Friday night.

Robertson, Scotland’s captain, was pictured leaving the camp early as he was taken inside for treatment by the medical team. 

The nature of the incident is not yet known but is hoped to just be a precautionary measure.

He walked off the pitch, although did look in some discomfort, as the physios took him into the gym area of the facility.

Former Celtic youth Aidan McIlduff – now a Scotland kitman – has replaced Robertson for the remainder of the training session.

In a further worry for Clarke and the national team, Lawrence Shankland was also forced off the pitch before the conclusion of the session.

The Hearts forward was taken into the changing rooms and played no further part in training.

Scotland assistant John Carver is expected to speak to the media later today, where he will deliver an update on the fitness of both players.

Locals were out in force to watch the Scots be put through their paces ahead of the big kick-off in four days.

Stuart Armstrong – who was a major injury doubt ahead of the tournament – could be seen doing some one-to-one work with the physio as he stepped up his individual recovery.
