Stuart Armstrong is the latest Scotland international to have his season ended by injury and Euro 2024 availability plunged into doubt.

The midfielder was taken off on a stretcher playing for Southampton on Saturday in what manager Russell Martin described as “a bad one”.

Bologna midfielder Lewis Ferguson will miss Euro 2024 squad through injury.

Two right-backs – Everton’s Nathan Patterson and Brentford’s Aaron Hickey – are also serious doubts.

Now midfielder Armstrong has picked up what manager Russell Martin described as “a bad one” against Cardiff City.

Armstrong, 32, went down in pain after having a shot blocked as he attempted to secure a late equaliser in Southampton’s 2-1 loss at Cardiff.

Martin, whose side stay fourth in the Championship, told his club website: “We’ll have to wait and see, but he’s going to be out for the rest of the season.”

Armstrong earned his 50th cap in last month’s 1-0 defeat by Northern Ireland.
