Scotland Fans Want ‘Bits & Pieces’ Played When Goals Are Scored At Hampden

Scotland Fans Want ‘Bits & Pieces’ Played When Goals Are Scored At Hampden

Scotland fans are voting for the tune they want played when goals are scored at Hampden – and ‘Bits & Pieces’ is the runaway leader so far.

The Scottish SFA set up a Twitter poll earlier on Thursday to ask fans which song should be blasted from the speakers the next time the national team hits the back of the net.

And the dance classic from Artemesia looks like it could be set to romp home with the winning vote.

Social media users were asked to vote between four options; 500 Miles by The Proclaimers, Chelsea Dagger from The Fratellis, Bits & Pieces or no music at all.

While no music has surprisingly racked up 18% of the 10,000-strong votes, Bits & Pieces is miles ahead with a staggering 46%.

Scottish music icons The Proclaimers and The Fratellis fall slightly behind with 21% and 15% respectively.

Being a regular on radio shows like GBX on Radio Clyde, Bits & Pieces was always going to be a popular option.

Its status as an essential party tune in Scotland was secured further this year when superstar DJ Calvin Harris included it in his headline set at T in the Park.

So who will win? What tune will we be craving in our bid to reach the 2018 World Cup in Russia?

We’ll find out when the poll closes in three days.
