Scotland have U-turned on their decision to take the knee against England – and will now do so alongside Three Lions players when the two sides meet at Wembley.

Tartan Army boss Steve Clarke said the two nations will "stand together as one against racism and kneel against ignorance" during next week's Home Nations showdown.

However, Scotland won't take the knee in their matches against Croatia at Hampden Park during Euro 2020.

"We have agreed that we will show solidarity with our counterparts in England, many of whom are teammates of our own players, and who have found themselves on the receiving end of abuse from fans in recent international matches," said Clarke on Friday.

"We will continue to take a stand – together, as one – for our matches at Hampden Park. For our match at Wembley, we will stand against racism and kneel against ignorance."

Liverpool defender and Scotland captain Andy Robertson added: "Our position was – and remains – that the focus must be on meaningful change to fight discrimination in football and wider society.

"In Scotland, the football family has stood against racism all season.

"It was our collective view that the national team would do the same. Our stance is that everyone, players, fans, teams, clubs, federations, governing bodies and governments must do more. Meaningful action is needed if meaningful change is to occur.

"But it is also clear, given the events around the England national team, taking the knee in this tournament matters as a symbol of solidarity.

"For this reason, we have collectively decided to again take the knee as a team for the fixture against England at Wembley Stadium. The Scotland team stands against racism but we will kneel against ignorance and in solidarity on June 18th."

Scotland switched from kneeling to standing before their World Cup qualifiers in March.

At the time, boss Clarke said gesture had become "maybe a little bit diluted."

This transition was reflected in the Scottish Premiership, but the Premier League continued to take the knee, and as a show of support this Sunday, the Tartan Army will do the same at Wembley.
