Day seven of the Glasgow 2014 Commonwealth Games has not been Scotland's most successful and the weather has turned a bit nasty too.

Still we have a silver (Daniel Keatings) and a bronze (Viorel Etko) and some fine performances to remember.

The games continue tomorrow and so does the live coverage on BBC Scotland. Join us at 07:00


Proud Scot

Adopted Scot Viorel Etko says he is the proudest man in Glasgow after delivering the host nation's first wrestling Commonwealth Games medal in 20 years with bronze in the 61kgs.

The 36-year-old was born in Moldova before leaving to pursue his athletic career first in Romania, then London in 1998, where he waited on tables and laboured on building sites before heading north of the border, eventually settling down to marry gymnast Laura Davies.

He said: "I am probably the proudest parent here, because I have my nine-year-old son Leon watching. I wanted to give him and all the other little kids a gift, all who are future Scottish athletes.

"I am fortunate to be the person who has done this. I thought I could make some history in Scottish wrestling."

On the medal trail

Scotland finish Day Seven of the Commonwealth Games in fourth place on the medal table after winning a silver and bronze medal to take their medal total up to 39.

Australia have the most medals in total, with 106, but sit below England in second place on the table due to England having won three more gold medals (38).

Celtic boss raging at loss

Alasdair Lamont

Senior football reporter, BBC Scotland

Following Celtic's 4-1 humbling by Legia Warsaw tonight in Poland, Ronny Deila is rightly raging with the result and performance but says they can win 3-0 at home (at Murrayfield).

Deila questioned the commitment of the team.

He said: "I feel let down by everybody but this is my responsibility."


In the squash, Women's Doubles Pool C: New Zealand (J King & A Landers-Murphy) beat Scotland (A Clark & F Gillen-Buchert) 11-6 11-2.

Traffic latest

BBC Scotland Travel


All roads from Hampden will be very busy following the Commonwealth Games athletics session. Shuttle buses are leaving from Dixon Avenue, at Aikenhead Road.

In Edinburgh there are no traffic problems being flagged up as people leave the city following tonight's diving at the Royal Commonwealth Pool.

Events are currently winding up at the SECC precinct so trains at the SECC will be extra busy, maybe try Anderston instead.

For people heading back to Edinburgh extra trains are running until 00:30 from Central Station and 01:00 from Queen Street.

The A7 South of Hawick is now opened at Langholm following an operation to recover an overturned HGV.

"My whole aim was to get to the final," he tells BBC Sport.

"My legs were dying but I'm in the Commonwealth final and that's what matters. The Hampden roar pulled me over the line - I can't explain the energy and the buzz it gives you."

It's not always the winning that counts

British crowds have always got behind the underdog and Glasgow 2014 has been no different.

Scotland's Eilish McColgan says she was simply glad to be competing at Hampden after suffering from a debilitating virus, food poisoning and then heart palpitations earlier this year.

"I didn't think I'd even be here at the start of the Games with the illness problems I've had so just to be racing, I couldn't be any happier," she tells BBC Sport after finishing sixth in the 3,000m steeplechase.

"I think my mum and dad will be proud of me. It's not the quickest I've ever run but it gives me a platform to build on."


The women's individual all-around final is well under way and it is a great start for Scotland's Emma White as she produces a superb beam routine for a 12.900.

She leads the way after three of four rotations and laps up the applause from the crowd with a smile and a wave.

But the leaderboard will all change when the second group takes to the floor at around 20:17 BST.
