The Scottish FA have apologised for blocking the view of disabled supporters with advertising boards during Scotland's 2-3 loss to Germany at Hampden Park on Monday evening.
Fans sitting in the South Stand's accessible area were left unable to see any of the action on the pitch due to several very large corporate sponsor advertisements obstructing the view.
A statement on the SFA website says:
"The Scottish FA apologises unreservedly to those supporters accommodated in the South Stand accessible areas whose view was seriously restricted by the double television production.
"We will offer a full refund to those supporters affected and will review matters ahead of the European Qualifier against Poland next month."
Here was some of the furious reactions from fans:
Wheelchairs at Hampden afforded 2nd class citizen status tonight thanks to ad hoarding. Nice one SFA. pic.twitter.com/iKQlMadF6Y— Mark Daly (@BBCMarkDaly) September 7, 2015
