He then turns the camera to himself, shouting “come on, Scotland”.

The Line of Duty actor, who was born in Greenock, shared the video with his 537,000 Twitter followers as he lauded the atmosphere at Scotland’s national football stadium.

He said: “Been to a few Scotland games in my time, in terms of pure entertainment and exhilaration that was the best ever. We’ll be coming.”

And a third added: “This is honestly the best thing I’ve seen!”

Steve Clark’s side now lead Israel by four points in Group F, meaning if Scotland beat the Faroe Islands and Moldova in upcoming games they will secure second place and a play-off spot.

The match was Hampden’s first full house since England’s visit in June 2017.
