The BT Sport presenter clearly has a soft spot for the hoops and shows more interest and enthusiasm than any Scottish presenter.

Chris Sutton, John Hartson and Johan Mjallby were in the team that lost out in 2003 but there was no prospect of a repeat as the class of 2017 showed the way.

Leigh Griffiths opened the scoring eight minutes before half time with Patrick Roberts doubling the advantage five minutes after the break.

There was a couple of chances to add to that before a last minute effort from Scott Sinclair rounded off the perfect Champions League display- and began the build up for Matchday Three away to Bayern in Munich.
