In the new clip, the Glasgow based brewing giant says it is serving Scotland by rallying the Tartan Army to transfer their passion for football over to tennis, backing the Murray boys over the coming weeks, with the brand adding that "after all ‘balls are balls’ and ‘nets are nets’".

Judy Murray, who teamed up with the brand to make the clip, said: “Going into a major tournament like Wimbledon it’s really important to have the support of the nation behind you.

"So when Tennent’s got in touch with me to feature in their 'ace' new video, which is all about rallying the troops to support Jamie and Andy, I was more than happy to join in.

“Tennent’s has a long history of supporting Scottish sport and sporting stars in general - it’s great to see them getting behind tennis.

"I’m sure you’ll love the video as much as I do. Anyone for Tennent’s?"

"With Wimbledon Away, we’re looking to drum up some support for Andy so he’s got the advantage of knowing the whole country is behind him.

“We got Judy involved because she’s been with him since day one, so who better to help us make a bit of a racquet and get Scotland watching the tennis.”

Andy Murray first triumphed at Wimbledon in 2013 becoming the first British man in 77 years to come out on top at the tournament.

Murray, who was born in Glasgow and turned professional at 2005, is currently ranked world number one.

Brother Jamie is a three time grand slam doubles winner and Davis Cup champion, and is currently the world number six doubles player.
