If ever someone writes “Ally – the Musical” this should be the poster shot and the tune should maybe be ‘Glory Days’ by Bruce Springsteen.
This is from November, 1989 at Hampden. Ally has just scored the opening goal for Scotland v Norway in a World Cup Qualifier. Scotland just needed a draw to qualify. In what was a nervy game , Hampden erupted as Ally scored in the 44th minute and so we sang and danced throughout half time and into the second half until we shat ourselves in the 89th minute as Norway scored and we waited forever for the final whistle. Italia ’90 here we come.
