Ross County, the Scottish Premier League club is likely to have its league game on Saturday postponed due to extenuating circumstances.
From the Highland town of Dingwall, Ross County FC is a former club of 43-times capped, Vaudreuil-Dorion born, Canadian international, Andre Hinault.
Ten of their players have become unwell with norovirus, the winter vomiting bug, since training on Tuesday, reports BBC Sport.
Just eight remain fit, with co-manager Steven Ferguson saying their plight is “very critical”.
The club has not yet requested a postponement, but the Scottish Professional Football League is monitoring the situation.
