Boss Stephen Robinson admits Scottish football has to learn to live with Covid-19 after a positive case at Motherwell this week.

A member of the Fir Park playing squad tested positive on Tuesday, and a secondary test on Wednesday also returned a positive result.

While that team member is self-isolating, no other member of staff has returned a positive test or been told to self-isolate.

A fresh round of testing has been carried out at the club this morning ahead of the clash with Ross County.

With fixtures against Kilmarnock and St Mirren called off in recent weeks with no games since facing Rangers on September 27, it's the latest virus blow for The Steelmen.

At his press conference today, Robinson confirmed the news but added it is something football must come to terms with.

The gaffer said: "We're really looking forward to a game, but it's the world we live in at the moment.

"We have to be as positive as we can when it comes around which will hopefully be tomorrow.

"The biggest frustration is trying to cram the games back n again when you have a small squad, but look we are no different to any other team, apart from the top two or three who have smaller squads.

"We are happy to play football in any shape or form and we are going to have to deal with what is in front of us.

"This is now an issue that is going to keep going. I don't think there is an advantage or disadvantage, it's just out in society and we have to cope with it.

"We've had a positive case ourselves on Tuesday and got that confirmed yesterday and they are self isolatiing.

"We are certainly not immune to it. St Mirren, Kilmarnock, every club is having it in world football. Standard Liege had it last night, Scotland had it, and we are just going to have to cope with it.

"We had a positive, all the rest of the staff and players tested negative, we have already retested this morning as a precautionary measure, and I think that highlights in Scottish football we are catching it, we are isolating the people that have it.

"We are not going to get rid of it, Scottish football isn't going to get rid of it, world football isn't going to get rid of it.

"People are paid a lot more money than us to find cures to that and hopefully they do that sooner rather than later."
