Ally McCoist 'would rather pick fight with Tyson Fury' than sing England anthem

Ally McCoist said that he would rather ‘step into the ring with Tyson Fury ’ than sing the famous Three Lions lyrics.

The song, which is well known for the line “football’s coming home”, has become the unofficial anthem of the English National Team in recent major tournaments gone by.

And the Rangers legend has been egged on by his English colleagues to belt it out as the men’s side progress through to their first final since the World Cup of 1966.

The most recent attempt to get the former Scotland ace to sing the tune came yesterday ahead of England’s Euro 2020 semi-final clash against Denmark.

TalkSport host Laura Woods interviewed boxing star Tyson Fury, where he proclaimed that “it’s coming home”.

When asked if he fancied giving the song a bash, McCoist was less than impressed by the request – but admitted that it’s a “catchy wee number”.

“I’ll be honest with you, I would rather walk into the ring with Tyson with a pair of boxing gloves on, throw my chin in his general direction and say ‘Tyson, have some of that if you fancy it’ than sing those words”, he said.

“Have I made that crystal clear enough?”

McCoist added: “I’m not fed up of hearing it, it’s a catchy wee number and I’m over it.”

While the English national side have been taking all the plaudits during Euro 2020, Ally McCoist has been the real superstar of the tournament.

Fans have been loving the ex-footballer’s commentary alongside his good ITV pal Clive Tyldesley.

But it appears the pair have been left out of commentating on the final, which will see England face off against Italy.

Tyldesley wrote on Twitter yesterday: “Today is the end of Euro 2020 as a commentator, start of Euro 2020 as a fan.”

Who knows, maybe Ally will be belting out Three Lions behind the scenes on Sunday…
