Caley Thistle have confirmed a first-team player has displayed symptoms of coronavirus.
However, the player did not attend the club’s stadium and was instead instructed to remain at home and self-isolate.
They are the first Scottish club to reveal any potential cases of the virus, in the wake of the shutdown of the national game by the Scottish FA and SPFL.
All football in Scotland is postponed for the foreseeable future in an effort to combat the spread of the disease. It follows England suspending all games until April 3 and the evolving global impact on sport.
A Caley Thistle club statement read: “The club can confirm that earlier this morning, one player reported that he had a number of similar symptoms to those of Covid 19.
“Following UK Govt guidelines and advice, the player was instructed to self-isolate and he accordingly did not report into Caledonian Stadium.
“This action is entirely precautionary, appropriate and proportionate and does not affect the rest of the 1st Team squad or the Football Dept.
“Similarly, it is business as usual at Caledonian Stadium in relation to our non-football business and ICT Community Trust activities and the stadium remains open as usual.”
