BBC pundit called out as ‘the only Scotland fan who didn’t celebrate the goal’

SCOTLAND picked up their first point of this year’s Euros with a 1-1 draw against Switzerland during the week.

It was a positive response from Steve Clarke‘s men after a humiliating 5-1 defeat to Germany in the opening fixture of the tournament.

Scotland could have possibly have gone on to win the game in the second half as the Swiss looked to hold onto the draw.

Speaking on BBC Scotland about the game, Leanne Crichton admitted she felt the same.

She said: “You’re in a tricky position because it’s a game that you probably could’ve potentially kicked on with 20 minutes to go and I think Steve Clarke could’ve been a bit more aggressive with the substitutions he could’ve made.

“But then if you go and chase the game you maybe get done at the other end so you’re in a vulnerable position where you know a point is enough but you don’t then want to retreat and defend that 1-1.

“But I actually felt at the opposite end that Scotland were shooting into, the Tartan Army were almost sucking the ball into the back of the net which I think helped keep the team up the pitch.

“At point you maybe would’ve retreated and been a bit nervous and a bit cautious but the fans were bang at it.”

Crichton then revealed that one pundit DIDN’T celebrate Scotland’s opener against the Swiss.

She added: “That anthem was phenomenal and the amount of people that you’ve spoken to, the clips that I’ve seen on social media, the comments of people saying they really struggled.

“I think you said as well Neil (McCann), the national anthem could make me go and lose it at the best of times but that the other night was special.”

Neil McCann then responded by saying: “I went a wee bit Leighanne.”

Steven Thompson then said: “Did you aye? Well done.”

And Crichton then added: “You and I (McCann) are quite passionate about Scotland, I don’t know about Thomo (Thompson) to be fair, we’re having to carry him through this trip.

“Only Scotland fan that didn’t celebrate the goal.”

It comes as a surprise after Thompson had 16 international caps with Scotland.

The ex-Dundee United, Rangers and St. Mirren striker also scored for his country in a World Cup Qualifier.
