Tartan Army fan attempts to get started chant in Dubai airport  – but is fulfilled with silence

Gary Carscadden was jetting off to Chisinau from his household in Dubai this early morning forward of Scotland’s critical game against Moldova in the Entire world Cup Qualifiers this night.

The 53-12 months-previous was cueing to board his flight to Istanbul in Dubai International Airport when he made a decision to see if any fellow supporters ended up on his flight.


The die-challenging lover filmed himself examining if any fellow Scots have been with him by making an attempt to get started the iconic “Scotland” chant but was satisfied by absolutely nothing but stony silence.

Gary, at first from Glenrothes, Fife, recorded the second, demonstrating him waiting around in a fairly prolonged queue for a flight to Moldova by using Istanbul, Turkey.

The online video displays a stream of persons slowly but surely ambling by means of the line as Gary can be heard stating: “So this is the queue for the Istanbul flight, I’m on my way to Moldova.”

He then flips the digital camera to confront himself in advance of stating: “Let’s have a wee appear at how lots of additional Scotland followers there are.”

He then turns so the camera is dealing with the throngs of people today ready in the queue and shouts: “So every person sing up, Scotland!”

Having said that it seems that no Tartan Army users ended up present, as an uncomfortable silence ensues.

A couple of persons can be witnessed turning to experience Gary with bewildered appears to be on their faces as his shout echoes off the walls of the setting up.

He claims: “No? No? There is no person else, just me” as he seems to rapidly change the camera off.

Talking currently, Gary mentioned: “I imagine I could possibly have been fortunate to find any admirers in the airport, there is a Dubai Tartan Military that I am energetic in but I’m not certain how lots of video games they go to.

“There ended up surely a few quizzical appears to be following I set my cellphone away, but the flight was packed and was leaving at 2:40am so I believe most folks just hunkered down and got on with it.

“It was five and a half hrs to Istanbul and then another 90 minutes as a result of to Chisinau so it’s been a prolonged night time.

“I’ve been next the countrywide staff my complete existence though predominantly at home games, until finally I moved to Dubai in 2012.

“After that, absent games with the Tartan Military turned a lot far more interesting!

“In conditions of tonight’s video game, I reckon we’ll get an early aim and could cruise to two or a few nil. If they park the bus it could get irritating although.

“It’s the hope that kills you!”
