Danny Mills has come up with an ingenious way to get around FIFA’s controversial poppy ban.
The decision has caused a furious backlash with both the FA and the SFA now intending to defy the ban by having their respective players wear black armbands with poppies on them.
The ruling from FIFA has also called a stir with Scottish First Minister Nicola Sturgeon, who expressed the importance of marking Armistice Day.
And ahead of the World Cup qualifier at Wembley next week, ex-Norwich and Leeds defender Mills believes there is a simple solution to the poppy fiasco.
The former Three Lions star believes players would be able to get away with wearing poppies as temporary tattoos.
Speaking on BBC Radio 5 Live, Mills said: “If the players are that insistent on wearing poppies, they should get a temporary tattoo, stick it on the back of their hand and, when the national anthems are played, put your hand on your heart and it’s there for everybody to see.
“FIFA cannot stop that. It’s no different than having a normal tattoo.”
