Serial Covidiot Nathan Patterson has revealed how he spent self-isolation watching television with his parents.

On February 13 the Ibrox starlet decided to join four team-mates and five randoms at a house party in the west end of Glasgow, at the time all of Scotland was in Tier 4 with indoor mixing against the law.

For extra reinforcement Jordan Jones and George Edmondson were forced by their club to self-isolate and given seven match SFA suspensions after being caught at a house party the day after Scot Arfield’s birthday. Both players were given Fixed Penalties.

In the early hours of February 14 party animal Patterson and nine others were given Fixed Penalties, on February 17 Steven Gerrard named the players involved the day before a Europa League tie against Royal Antwerp.

As captain James Tavernier was stretchered off injured there was no natural right-back to replace the former Wigan utility man. Watching at home was young Patterson. Recalling his supposed period of ‘self-isolation’ the Scotland ace told The Sun:

That night was not my best moment. I was sitting with my mum and dad and it is probably the most down I have been in my life.

There wasn’t really much said at that point as they had already said what had to be said. I just got my head down and we all worked through it together.

That’s why we are a family — there’s no point in keeping going on about the bad stuff when you can look forward to the good stuff and that’s where I am today.

But I thought to myself, ‘I will get another opportunity. It is not the end of my career. I will get another opportunity and I will work hard and when I get there, I will take my opportunity’.

The SFA have certainly gone out of their way to accommodate Patterson, after starting four SPFL matches the Ibrox starlet was selected ahead of Liam Palmer for the European Championship squad.

While Celtic had two matches postponed by the SFA after Boli Bolingoli broke protocols in August it took the SFA two months to suspend Patterson.

On Monday Scotland players will stand up to show their opposition to racism, on Friday at Wembley they will take the knee before standing up again in their final group match at home to Croatia.
