Scotland's Ferguson set to miss Euro 2024 with ACL injury

Scotland midfielder Lewis Ferguson looks set to miss Euro 2024 after Bologna confirmed he has ruptured his anterior cruciate ligament (ACL).

The 24-year-old was forced off during Saturday's Serie A draw against Monza and tests on Monday have concluded he will require surgery.

Ferguson - who featured in both of Scotland's friendlies last month - was expected to be named in the 23-player squad for the Euros.

The news will come as a huge blow to Scotland boss Steve Clarke who admitted - in an exclusive interview with Sky Sports in December - that injuries could alter his plans for the finals.

Since leaving Aberdeen for Italy in the summer of 2022 in a deal worth around £3m, Ferguson has been a revelation with his form earning him a contract extension and the club captaincy.

Now on the brink of leading Bologna to Champions League qualification for the first time since 1964, it is no surprise he is catching the eye of clubs across Europe.
