IT’S the coin everyone wants to kiss and it will have pride of place at Hampden on Sunday.

Farid El Alagui has locked lips with his lucky pound 22 times so far this season, and he’ll happily lay another smacker in Sunday’s Scottish Communities League Cup semi-final with Celtic.

Farid told The Falkirk Herald: “Never did I think when I found the coin that I would be kissing it 22 times. But I hope it can be many more times, and many more kisses, on Sunday.

“I will definitely be taking it along to Hampden... and hope Neil (McFarlane) will be holding it out for me during the game - that will mean I’ve scored.

“But as I’ve always said, playing in this Falkirk team is easy with these players around me - I just do the piece at the end, they do hard work before me.

“For sure, I look forward to making it an Old Firm double, and kissing the coin again!”
