hello and welcome to sportsday. welcome along to sportsday — plenty to come on the cricket in india and tennis in australia later in the programme — but we're going to start in scotland. as the first minister nicola sturgeon has called on football to — in her words — "make sure your house is in order" — after reports rangers players breached covid rules by attending a house party at the weekend. rangers issued a statement to say they were aware of the allegations and had launched an internal investigation. chris mclaughlin has this report. police were called to an address on this street in glasgow in the early hours of sunday morning. fixed penalty notices were issued to ten people. a number of those were

in daily to allow for social distancing to still be observed. they'd have to pass a lateral flow test. . .with results available within 20 minutes. and i spoke to the chester racecourse ceo richard thomas about how their grand plans came about.... we all know that these boys will be opened eventually and it's a case of bringing it to the forefront. i think what we have done is that a lateral flow testing for quite a time now back here at work and we know it works to a greater extent. it makes a lot of sense for us to have an extra layer of security for people coming back into sports and back into this environment but they have been tested and they are able to come out and enjoy themselves. 0bviously to come out and enjoy themselves. obviously a lot of people at home are wanting to get back to sports. who has been involved in this

6:43 pm
it doesn't swing as much, so that has to be something in the wicket. this one has accelerated bit quickly, but that is also playing on the subcontinent, just like when teams come to england or go to other places in the world where it seems the wickets are different, it's just cricket in different parts of the world. it's important for an end to get experience in certain parts of the team. they can use this bit in the payout. team. they can use this bit in the -a out. . . team. they can use this bit in the .a out. ,, team. they can use this bit in the -a out. , , payout. his play could be in jeopardy — payout. his play could be in jeopardy because _ payout. his play could be in jeopardy because jonny - payout. his play could be in - jeopardy because jonny bairstow is jeopardy becausejonny bairstow is meant to come back into a bedside for the third and fourth test match as i have got somebody like them. he had not played a great deal of cricket over the last year or so but is keeping to a space. he says how
