Euro 2020: Line of Duty’s Martin Compston celebrates Scotland draw

The Tartan Army was celebrating across the UK after winning a point against England in their hotly anticipated Euro 2020 clash last night.

And proud Scot Martin Compston was among them as he shared his jubilation after his team’s draw against England.

The Line Of Duty star watched the Group D match from home with wife Tianna Flynn, and after Scotland excelled in the tense goalless match, he expressed his joy on his Instagram stories.

The 37-year-old, who is from Greenock, said: ‘Oh my god… it’s only a draw but considering we were playing the apparent tournament favourites… come on!’

The actor began cheering and chanting the lyrics to We’ll Be Coming, before planting a kiss on the television screen when Scottish manager Steve Clarke appeared on the coverage.

Martin shared a picture to Instagram and wrote: ‘True tartan love.’

Over on Twitter, Martin, best known for playing Steve Arnott on Line Of Duty, wrote: ‘Hearts in my mouth at times but the way Mctominay and Gilmour are taking the ball in tight areas and playing out from the back under pressure is immense to see.

‘After the year or so it’s been to hear a whole city alive out the window is a beautiful thing, what the euros and @ScotlandNT can do.’

He also hit back at a man on Twitter who was seemingly ‘condescending’ towards him, but spelled it ‘condensation’, and followed up: ‘Aye aye condescension but I’m steaming and not on countdown I’m on Steve Clarke’s world. All I care abt isssssssss. Yessssirr i can boogie if you sing a certain soooong!!!!! [sic].’

Martin’s American wife Tianna also got in on the celebrations, sharing selfies of her and her husband – who usually live in Las Vegas – cheering on Scotland.

Prior to beginning his acting career, Martin was actually a footballer, and was a youth player with Aberdeen before signing for his local club Greenock Morton.

A video of Martin reacting to Scotland getting through to the Euros – the side’s first major since the 1998 World Cup – after a penalty shoot-out with Serbia went viral, as the actor was filming Line of Duty at the time.

The hilarious moment saw Martin watching the penalties in a squad car before leaping out and screaming, later beeping the car horn in celebration.

Last night, many celebrities were at Wembley to cheer on their teams, whether that was David Beckham, Piers Morgan and Mel C supporting England, or Iain Stirling, Lorraine Kelly and Sir Rod Stewart cheering on Scotland.

Love Island narrator Iain tweeted: ‘ITS COMING HAME’, and called Billy Gilmour the ‘best player on the pitch by some way’. 

Next Tuesday, it will be decided who from Group D progresses to the next round, as Scotland take on Croatia and England face Czech Republic.

As it stands, Scotland needs a victory over Croatia to have any hope of making it to the last 16.

If Scotland win and England and the Czechs – currently both on four points each – draw, Scotland should go through as one of the four third-placed teams.

Meanwhile, England need at least a draw against Czech Republic to secure their place, while only a victory will be enough to be group winners.
