Dailies celebrate after footballers deliver on newspaper’s Trumpian plea

Daily newspapers have celebrated a landmark sporting triumph on their front pages after a Trumpian rallying cry.

Scottish dailies have marked Scotland’s national football team qualifying for their first major tournament since 1998 after beating Serbia last night.

Glasgow’s Daily Record was among the titles to splash on the historic victory this morning.

It came 24 hours after the Record had urged the team to ‘Make Scotland Great Again’ in a tongue-in-cheek reference to the defeated US President Donald Trump.


Today the Record ran with the headline ‘Were’ Back’ after the win in Belgrade.
