Ally McCoist became agitated after seeing Rangers score in their Europa League final. He needed a big hug from his mother to calm him down.
McCoist (59), a legend among Gers commentators, was part of the BT Sport team that provided punditry in Seville. Just like Rangers fans, McCoist couldn’t contain his joy when Joe Aribo gave Scottish legends the lead.
Aribo took advantage of a mistake made by Eintracht Frankfurt defender Tuta halfway through the second period to send Rangers supporters into the Ramon Sanchez-Pizjuan. The moment McCoist saw his beloved team win the match was captured by a behind-the scenes video taken at the stadium’s BT Sport Studio. It was all that Rangers fans had hoped for.
McCoist stood still as Aribo raced to the goal. After the former Charlton Athletic forward passed the ball past Frankfurt stopper Kevin Trapp, it all changed.
After he saw Darrell Currie on BT Sport, the veteran broadcaster shook his head and spun around before clenching both fists in joy. The veteran broadcaster then joined his fellow pundits in a group hug before exhaling another huge cheer.
McCoist managed to regain his composure as Rangers fans surrounded him in confusion. He straightened his tie and shared a more intimate embrace with Currie.
Social media users loved the reaction of the Scotsman, and one person wrote: “God bless that man.”Someone else said: “It’s impossible not to love Ally McCoist.”

Unfortunately, his joy was quickly replaced by despair 12 minutes later when Rafael Borre scored the equalizer that sent the final into extra time.
