    Default Geek Of The Week

    This guy has to win some kind of geek award. How about some more contributions from the bilge rats?

    If you're Scottish, what is the correct way to celebrate your men's national team qualifying for a major tournament for the first time in your life?
    Buy a replica shirt? Hang a flag out of the window?

    How about finding streets matching the names of every player in the squad, then travelling to each one for a selfie?

    "Nicola Sturgeon has demanded the Scotland v Czech Republic game be replayed. In a press conference a few minutes ago she angrily stated that the result "did not reflect her wishes nor the will of the Scottish voters" and has vowed to have the game replayed "as many times as possible" before Fridays clash with England to ensure the "right" result."
