Iain Lindsay, a proud Falkirk Bairn, has been going to matches all over the world for the past 40 years and only now will he be able to watch his native Scotland in a country where he is now living and working as Britain's Ambassador to Hungary.

The well-travelled diplomat has recorded a Youtube video, which was posted on the Tartan Army Message Board web page.

Wearing a Scotland top, kilt and sporran in the grand surroundings of the British Embassy, Mr Lindsay said: "I am Iain Lindsay. I am Britain’s Ambassador to Hungary. I’m a proud Scot. I’m a Falkirk Bairn.

“Pure dead brilliant!"

He goes on to provide travelling supporters with some advice on how to make their trip safe and enjoyable, stating: "To all members coming over to Hungary for the big game, Budapest is a very friendly city, a lovely place.

“Hungarians are very hospitable and welcoming. So enjoy yourselves. Stay safe. Looking forward to seeing you at the big game.

“C’mon Scotland!”
