Ryan Porteous has been handed an extended ban for his red card against Germany which rules him out of both Scotland’s remaining Euro 2024 group games – and quite possibly means his tournament is over.

The defender was sent off late in the first half of Friday's 5-1 defeat at the hands of the hosts, conceding a penalty with his challenge on Ilkay Gundogan.

UEFA's Control Ethics and Disciplinary Body (CEDB) met to review Porteous' tackle, and have handed the Watford player a two-game ban, citing "serious rough play”.

Red cards in the tournament automatically attract a ban for one game, but UEFA have come down doubly hard.

The former Hibs centre back desperately tried to stop Gundogan putting the Germans 3-0 up, throwing himself into a challenge on the Barcelona star.

He initially won the ball, but caught Gundogan with a follow-through that left him writhing in pain.

French ref Clement Turpin was sent to the VAR screen and it was little surprise when he brandished a straight red and pointed to the spot.

Porteous knew he would have to sit out Wednesday night's crunch game against Switzerland in Cologne, where defeat will see Steve Clarke's men eliminated from the Euros and extend their run of never reaching a knockout stage.

Now, though, Porteous is relying on his teammates to take enough points to get out of Group A and give him a chance of playing again.

They will finish their group phase games against Hungary on Sunday.

Two former Scotland internationals were highly critical of the Porteous challenge in interviews they gave over the weekend.

Friday's game saw Porteous earn his 12th Scotland cap, the first of them coming against the Ukraine in September 2022.

He scored his first international goal in a 3-0 win over Cyprus during qualifying for the Euro 24 finals.
