LEWIS Capaldi scored plenty of laughs after being ambushed by footballing legends while enjoying a pint in the West End. 

The singer was pounced on by Si Ferry and the Open Goal team in the Record Factory yesterday. 

Former Rangers stars Kevin Kyle and Andy Halliday, ex-Celtic player Frank McAvennie, and Ferry's co-host Paul Slane were also there as they quizzed Capaldi on football.

The Someone You Loved crooner gave as good as he got when asked whether Manchester City starlet Phil Foden is better than Gers legend Paul Gascoigne. 

Paul said: "There has been a lot of controversy after Si Ferry said that Phil Foden is better than Gazza.

"Lewis, would you agree with that?"

In amongst the chaotic scenes, Capaldi responded: "Listen, guys. It's really important that we all come together. It's been a hard few months.

"There are more important things than liking football.

"Wherever you are guys I just want you to know: love each other, enjoy life..."

Capaldi then turned to the camera to declare he thought the controversial Superleague - a short-lived plan which would have seen a number of clubs form their own competition  - was a "good idea".

Things quickly descended into chaos at the end of the clip, with Si appearing to steal Lewis' beer before the group sang Someone You Loved.

The video has racked up more than 4,200 likes with a whole load of commenters quick to point out how much Lewis clearly wants to return to his friends.

And what about the original question? When asked again by Si if he preferred Foden or Gazza, Capaldi said: "I like, eh, Foden."
