SFA boss: 'Players will wear poppies on Armistice Day'

The boss of the Scottish Football Association says the issue of Scotland players wearing remembrance poppies on Armistice Day is about: "doing the right thing".

Stewart Regan told the BBC that it was only right that those lining up for the England v Scotland World Cup qualifier, in Wembley on Remembrance Sunday, should have the opportunity to pay their respects to the fallen.

Mr Regan had been meeting the sports governing body when he said players will wear armbands during the game despite being at odds with FIFA's ruling on the banning of 'political symbols'.

FIFA general secretary Fatma Samoura has said that no exceptions would be made by the world governing body.
