Scottish Premiership clubs have been given government approval to resume contact training from Monday.

The suspension of all Scottish football activity was lifted on June 11 but only for top-flight clubs to train in a physically-distanced manner following the coronavirus crisis.

But the latest development gives clubs five weeks of contact training before the Scottish Premiership season is due to kick off.

A statement from Scottish football’s Joint Response Group read: “The Joint Response Group can now confirm that ministers have formally approved full contact training for Scottish Premiership clubs from tomorrow, Monday June 29.

“We would therefore encourage clubs to inform all team staff as soon as possible to facilitate the updated guidance, and clarify that the approval for full contact training is inclusive of all Phase 4 requirements outlined in the Joint Response Group Return to Training protocols reissued on Friday.

A spokesperson added: “Today’s confirmation from Scottish Government ministers is welcomed and is another significant step towards the resumption of the Scottish football season, beginning with the Premiership on August 1.”
