In a video sent to Tennent’s Lager, mystifier Uri Geller urges Scotland fans to ‘Believe’ in their side ahead of tonight’s match against the Auld Enemy.


Uri, who famously claimed he intervened in Scotland’s Euro 96 game against England by moving the ball from the penalty spot ahead of Gary McAllister’s penalty, features in the clip in which he calls for positive thinking and motivational touching of the Tartan Army’s hands in a bid to help Gordon Strachan’s side win at Wembley tonight.

Tennent’s Lager are calling for all Scotland fans to join Uri at 7pm and create the largest ‘touching of hands’ and leave the memories of Euro 96 in the past, join together and send ‘positive messages’ to the team tonight.

Alan McGarrie, Head of Brand Marketing at Tennent’s said: “Everyone remembers the Euro 96 match where Uri Geller gave England a helping hand. Had Gary McAllister scored that penalty, who knows how the rest of the tournament may have gone? Well, maybe Uri does…

“We’re willing to take all the help we can get tonight. Here’s hoping the Tartan army join Uri in 'touching hands' at 7pm and help the boys get a great result at Wembley, just remember to have a pint of Tennent’s Lager in the other.”
