Smile has to be surgically removed from Ally McCoist’s face after Rangers win

He still can't stop grinning

BT Sport pundit Ally McCoist is in ‘good spirits’ after an operation to have the smile surgically removed from his face.

Doctors say the 59-year-old is recovering well after the complicated nine-hour procedure, which involved some of Scotland’s top surgeons.

McCoist reported feeling ‘very well’ after dancing on the BT Sport gantry following Rangers’ 3-1 triumph over RB Leipzig, which sent the Ibrox club into the Europa League Final.

The club’s former manager and record goalscorer was then whisked away to the Queen Elizabeth University Hospital where doctors fought to remove his ‘big cheesy grin’.

Speaking from his hospital bed, McCoist told Paddy Power News:

‘The surgeon told me there’d be a wee bit of scarring but she managed to remove around 97% of my smile’.

‘They told me to get plenty of rest and avoid watching the highlights from last night’s game and I should be braw’.

Head of Queen Elizabeth University Hospital’s Specialist Drama Unit, Dr Steph O’Scope, who carried out the procedure, told us:

‘Although the operation was a success, the chances of his smile coming back remain extremely high’.

‘Particularly if Rangers beat Frankfurt in the final or Celtic somehow manage to throw away their six point lead at the top of the SPL’.

Meanwhile, Dr O’Scope also revealed that McCoist was being treated for a stage 4 hangover.
