Ireland Troll Scotland Over Referendum No-Vote Ahead Of Euro Qualifier

Ireland Troll Scotland Over Referendum No-Vote Ahead Of Euro Qualifier

The Republic of Ireland are preparing for a massive Euro Championship qualifier with Scotland tomorrow night, where the stakes couldn’t be higher.

And the Irish have used their quick wit to have a little fun at their opponents expense before kick-off, by taking a dig at the Scots over the result of last year’s Independence Referendum.

Scotland voted against being an independent country in 2014 and it seems their noisy neighbours haven’t forgotten the result.

Irish betting company Paddy Power reacted by planting a sensational billboard truck outside the Aviva Stadium, featuring Roy Keane dressed as Scot’s hero William Wallace.

The billboard quips,

“You may take our points, but at least we have our freedom (ya wee pussies)”

Ireland currently trail Scotland by two points with Poland leading Group D followed closely by second placed World Cup holders Germany.

Martin O’Neill is under increased pressure to get a result, as a defeat to Gordon Strachan’s side will all but ensure qualification to Euro 2016 is impossible for the Irish.
