Andy Murray’s cheeky post from England v Scotland game creates social media stir
Andy Murray has tended to avoid getting involved in the England v Scotland rivalry, but he couldn’t resist a tweet after the two nations clashed at Wembley in the Euro 2020 finals.
Murray infamously got himself into hot water when a throwaway comment suggesting he would “support whoever England were playing against” in the 2006 World Cup, with the quip cruelly used as a stick to beat the Scot with for many years that followed.
It was a media storm that taught Murray plenty of painful lessons, but the two-time Wimbledon champion has long since overcome those snipes from blinkered England fans, so he had some fun after spending the evening watching Scotland draw 0-0 with England at Wembley.
The Scots could have nicked a famous win in a low-quality game at Wembley, inspiring Murray to offer up this cheeky tweet.
Murray backed up that tweet with a message praising Scotland and Chelsea midfielder Billy Gilmore after his impressive display against England.
