Just been banned from all world sports.

 

If we don’t get their place at the Euros, I fully expect the SFA to take this to court.

I think they'll still be allowed to compete at Euro 2020 as the event wasn't listed on the WADA conditions. World Cup 2022 in Qatar was listed.

It doesn’t affect the Euros or, indeed, the World Cup.

There are loopholes !

But yes, I'd also expect it to at least be challenged by the SFA and rightly so.

Only band from major sporting comps. Committee don’t deem euros as a major event so does not apply. We are still miles of ever qualifying for anything even with other breaking the rules don’t worry

We don't deserve to be anywhere near a World Cup or Euros anytime soon anyway. We embarrass ourselves as a nation enough during the qualifiers.

They are banned from everything bar the Euro's pretty much... Looking forward to March games. IF we beat Israel then its the biggest game since Italy!

Agree- they pumped us fair and square.. strange that they are allowed to play at euros in 2020 but not the WC though

UEFA are not considered to be a major event organiser oddly enough. That said it would be a laughable way to qualify anyway.

Just heard on the BBC 2 news that the ban does include the 2020 Euros and the 2022 World Cup.

Just when you think we have run out of ways to not qualify for something, we go and finish directly behind Russia in the wrong qualifying competition.

It must be added to the long list

 

I thought the women topped it in summer, people have been recalling Saudi U30s team beating our U16s in World final. This is up there.

As far as I can make out teams and athletes will still compete if they can prove no doping (as all footballers will be able to) but no flag or anthems.

 

This won't affect Scotland at all - we still aren't going anywhere!


And the Euros isn't classed as a 'major sporting event' somehow.

I haven't seen anything suggesting doping in football in Russia is happening to any extent. 

 

There was an investigation but found "insufficient evidence". The dad of Denis Cheryshev claimed he was using a growth hormone but he was cleared.

BBC Radio news are now reporting that they are banned from Euro 2020.  Still not hanging my hat on that though.

Russia cheated fair & square. Would be a travesty, if a team as pish as Scotland stole their place.

😂😂 UEFA pleading for Russia to be allowed to stay in to avoid the tournament being devalued by Scotland

The Terrace is for football topics in general though, not just Hearts.

I don't care how we get there I just want to see us at a major finals again! Although apparently now if we ever quality for a Euros we can't consider it a major finals.

I don’t think a bunch of thick football players really count as embarrassing ourselves as a NATION.

Perhaps, but I honestly wouldn’t care. Denmark won Euro 92, and nobody remembers or cares that they didn’t actually qualify for it and were only there because of the war in Yugoslavia.

Absolute disgrace that a team of state sponsored doping cheats are being allowed Scotland’s rightful place at these Euros. Every one of their players is probably on performance enhancing drugs. 
 

Should be disqualified

Russia are a bigger name. UEFA won't budge and with the SFA being so inept I doubt they'll act either.

 

Farse but not a shock

We were being led by a guy with an alcohol problem and some clear signs of illness though to be fair.

 

But aye we'd merely be there to make up the numbers

Seems like a big story. But hardly anyone is talking about it really. 

What do you think Russians think about it? Do they think they are being framed or what

They'll more than likely blame the 'corrupt' west for planting fake records or evidence. Cold War never really ended after all did it?

Might be due to the fact that St Petersburg are a host city for Euros 2020

I think games being in St Petersburg is more important to UEFA
