Fans loved seeing talkSPORT’s Ally McCoist cheering on Scotland at the Six Nations at Murrayfield in a dramatic clash against France.
Scotland lost 16-20 to France in controversial circumstances on Saturday when a final try was disallowed in an electric match at Murrayfield.
In the first half, Ben White produced a brilliant team move to win the first try, led by talisman Finn Russell.
And in the stands to celebrate the try was talkSPORT’s McCoist, who couldn’t hide his joy.
In fact, the former Scotland and Rangers striker was so jubilant he seemed to forget where he was as he sought to get up and dance with his loved ones.
Other fans nearby, however, did not seem to share his enthusiasm and celebrated in moderation.
And fans have noticed McCoist’s footballing roots, with one saying: “McCoist wants to jump around like football fans do, but not in rugby.”
“National treasure,” wrote another.
While a third said: “Tries to party like he’s at the football and finds out he’s surrounded by boring assholes!”
And even if McCoist was celebrating at the time, he was unlikely to be as happy at the end of the game.
Scotland were denied a winning try despite lengthy television replays during the Six Nations clash.
Referee Nic Berry initially decided not to try, but replays suggested the ball was on the ground through a pile of bodies.
However, the decision was made to stick with the decision on the pitch and there was no conclusive evidence, thus handing France victory.
“I think it was a try. But it depends on the referee,” said Scotland captain Russell, while head coach Gregor Townsend was much more unhappy.
“We were celebrating in the coaches’ box,” Townsend said.
“We could hear the TMO’s conversation with the referee, saying ‘the ball was on the foot, then the ball was on the ground’, then he changes his mind and says ‘stick to the decision on the field “.I don’t know what you can say.”
Scotland are one win from two after their narrow victory over Wales, while France managed to repair some of the damage caused by a 17-38 defeat to Ireland last week.
Scotland will face England on February 24 in the Calcutta Cup. Steve Borthwick’s men are currently two wins from two after beating Wales and Italy.
