A CALEY Thistle footballer is in self-isolation after showing symptoms that could be related to coronavirus.

The first team player is being tested for the disease, but club officials will not name him at present before family members are informed.

The Championship club confirmed the player had excluded himself from training this morning before the Scottish Football Association announced an indefinite shutdown of all matches.

So far there are no confirmed cases of coronavirus in the Highlands.

Caley Thistle chief executive Scot Gardiner said: “We can confirm one player is in self-isolation but we can’t identify him at this moment in time because it is a private medical matter.”

Earlier today, the SFA announced it was halting the Scottish football season as part of the national effort to slow the spread of the illness and ease pressures on the emergency services.
