Israel’s former Celtic star Beram Kayal has called for UEFA to confirm the postponement of their Euro 2020 Play-off semi-final in Scotland.

And the Brighton star has predicted an Italy-style lockdown is coming to this country soon.

Scotland are due to face the Israelis at the end of this month.

But UEFA are expected to confirm all future games are postponed when they hold their conference calls with their members on Tuesday.

FIFA have already advised that all games are postponed until a later date.

And Kayal – whose brother is a doctor in his homeland – has called for football to be forgotten about just now.

He said: “There’s no point to football.

“There are a lot of ailments in the world, but there’s never been anything of this intensity.

“This virus will impact on everyone. In football and politics, everyone needs to unite to minimise the damage.

“My brother is a doctor in Israel, and he has told me the stories of panic.

“I also have family there, so it is a huge worry.

“From what my brother has told me, it will take at least a year-and-a-half to find a cure, and only the weather will slow it.

“Everything needs to be called off for a long time.

“The situation is deteriorating every day, and we have been told that we will be in the same position as Italy in about two weeks.

“The only chance the game against Scotland would have gone ahead is behind closed doors – but that won’t happen now either.”
