Scotland have been warned about the amount of time ball boys at Hampden take to get the ball back into play.

Uefa upheld a complaint by France coach Raymond Domenech and the referee after Scotland's 1-0 win in October.
Scottish Football Association chief executive David Taylor said it was the most bizarre thing he had encountered.
"Our ball boys failed to deliver the ball back after (Gary Caldwell's) goal. The happy ending is we got off with a warning," Taylor said.
Domenech was unhappy with the conduct of the ball boys during his side's defeat on 7 October after Scotland stunned the World Cup finalists with an unexpected victory in the Euro 2008 qualifier.
It's the most bizarre thing I've encountered with Scotland
SFA chief executive
Taylor said he was surprised the conduct of the ball boys had been made an issue.
"Our ball boys failed to deliver the ball back after the goal," the SFA chief executive said.
"It was in the referee's report and in the match delegate's report. The referee said the ball was not returned to play quickly enough.
"We contested that because we didn't feel it was proper. The happy ending is we got off with a warning.
"It was strange to end up with a disciplinary charge against us for it."
Taylor defended Scotland's conduct during international games and said, if anything, the side "err on the side of being sporting".
He added: "It surprised us to be charged with such an offence.
"It's the most bizarre thing I've encountered with Scotland.
France were stunned after losing to Scotland in the Euro 2008 qualifier
"We brief the ball boys during the game. They are Queen's Park's youth players.
"We'll need to make sure before the next game, which is against Georgia at home in March, even if we're 1-0 up with five minutes to go, even if the players are saying 'do you have to give the ball back so quickly?' that they do it."
Scotland and France are currently joint top of Group B in the Euro 2008 qualifiers, with nine points from four games.
Scotland boss Walter Smith said the win over France was the best of his managerial career.
