However, tickets for the fan zone for the Scotland v Hungary clash on Sunday, June 23, are still up for grabs.

The 48-year-old snooker player - who is from North Lanarkshire - recently visited the stadium to promote the event.

The sportsman believes Scotland 'has every chance of making it through'.

He said: “I really think that they can do it this year, the players have shown tremendous spirit and you can tell that they enjoy playing for each other.

“The event at Broadwood sounds fantastic and – apart from being over in Germany – I can’t think of a better way to watch the games along with friends and family.

“I think there will be an amazing atmosphere inside the stadium – let’s hope that this year is our year!”

Provost Kenneth Duffy, added: “The Big Game at Broadwood Stadium promises to be an event to remember, whether you're a die-hard sports fan or just looking for a fun day out,

“It’s such a great venue and the perfect place for people to come together for this exciting event, with fun for the whole family.”
