The Tartan Army celebrated across the UK after winning a point against England in the much-anticipated Euro 2020 match last night.
Proud Scotsman Martin Compston was among them when he shared his joy after his team’s draw with England.
The Line Of Duty star watched the Group D match from home with his wife, Tiana Flynn, and after Scotland edged out the goalless match, he expressed his delight with his Instagram stories.
The 37-year-old, who is from Greenock, said: “Oh my God…it’s just a draw, but considering we’ve been playing against the candidates who appear to be the favorites for the tournament… let’s go!”
The actor began cheering and chanting the lyrics of the song We Be Coming, before laying a kiss on TV when Scottish manager Steve Clarke appeared on the cover.
Martin shared a photo on Instagram and wrote: “True tartan love.”
Martin, best known for playing Line Of Duty’s Steve Arnott, wrote on Twitter: “I have hearts in my mouth sometimes, but the way Mctominay and Gilmour take the ball in tight spots and play from behind under pressure is phenomenal to see. .
“After a year or so, hearing an entire city live through the window is great, what the Euro and ScotlandNT can do.”
He also replied to a guy on Twitter who seemed to be ‘condescending’ to him, but said the word ‘intensify’ to him, and continued, ‘Yeah, yes, condescending, but I’m pissed and I’m not counting down I’m in Steve Clark’s world. All I care about is isssssssss. Yes, I can dance if I sing sooooo certain!!!! [sic].
Martin’s American wife Tiana also took part in the festivities, sharing selfies of her and her husband, who usually lives in Las Vegas, cheering for Scotland.

Before starting his acting career, Martin was actually a footballer and was a youth player with Aberdeen before joining his local club Greenock Morton.
A video spread of Martin reacting to Scotland’s arrival in the European Championship, the team’s first major tournament since the 1998 World Cup, after a penalty shootout with Serbia, as the actor was filming the line of duty at the time.
The hilarious moment saw Martin watching the penalty shootout in a squad car before he jumped up and shouted, then sounded his horn to celebrate.
Last night many celebrities were at Wembley to cheer on their teams, whether it was David Beckham, Piers Morgan and Mel C to support England, or Ian Sterling, Lauren Kelly and Sir Rod Stewart cheering for Scotland.
Love Island narrator Iain tweeted: “HAME IS COMING,” calling Billy Gilmour “the best player on the field in some way.”
Next Tuesday will determine who goes from Group D to the next round, with Scotland facing Croatia, and England facing the Czech Republic.
As it stands, Scotland need a win over Croatia to have any hope of reaching the Round of 16.
If Scotland win and England and the Czech Republic draw, currently with four points each, Scotland should pass as one of the four third-placed teams.
Meanwhile, England need at least a draw with the Czech Republic to secure their place, while just one win would be enough to win the group.
