The Watford defender will now miss fixtures against Switzerland on Wednesday and Hungary on Sunday as Scotland aim to progress from the group stage of an international tournament for the first time in history.
Porteous received his red card as the first half against Germany was coming to an end, with Scotland already 2-0 down after early goals from Florian Wirtz and Jamal Musiala.
The Euro 2024 hosts were awarded a penalty for the challenge on Gundogan after a VAR review, which Kai Havertz
scored.The midfielder also added that his motivation as a manager comes from what he failed to achieve as a player.“There is a lot of unfinished business from my playing career,” he explained in an interview with BBC Sport. “That drives me forward with my coaching.“I didn’t achieve anything in the Champions League with Manchester United. The title we lost to [Manchester] City. I came to Watford when they were in the Premier
League. I retired as a player with them in the Championship. None of it sits right.
Niclas Fullkrug and Emre Can then added to Germany’s tally in the second half, while a late own goal from Antonio Rudiger was of little consolation for Scotland.
Manager Steve Clark later revealed Porteous was feeling “very down” since the incident.
“The other night, he was trying to stop a clear goal-scoring opportunity and he definitely went in too hard and we are pleased that Gundogan appears to have no lasting damage,” he said.
“It is something that Ryan will learn, but is an honest challenge to try to get the ball.
“[It was] to try to stop a goal-scoring opportunity so I wouldn’t be too hard on him. He was one of my cuddles. I explained the situation. It doesn’t look good. Ryan didn’t want to make that challenge, he wanted to stop a goal.
“He is very down as you would expect, but we will pick him up, don’t worry about that.”
