Paddy Power’s trolling of Scottish football fans is fantastic

Ahead of the Ireland v Scotland game tomorrow, our Celtic cousins are coming to Dublin in droves. And, in pure Paddy Power style, the bookmaker has "welcomed" them to our fair city with a giant sign.

Paddy Power’s trolling of Scottish football fans is fantastic

It's brilliant.

So, let's break that down:

• That's not Mel Gibson. That's Roy Keane photoshopped to look like William Wallace from Braveheart.

• "At least we have our freedom" is a dig at the recent Scottish independence referendum.

• "Ya wee pussies" off to the side is completely childish but very funny.

"You can't but admire a nation that turned deep frying a Mars Bar into culinary art," the company said in a press release, "but we just couldn't resist a bit of craic with our Celtic brothers ahead of the match."

Quite. This is almost as good as the welcome the English supporters received last week.
