IT’S Burns day – so no better time for some of Rangers stars to get their teeth into one of the bard’s most popular poems.
The social media team at Ibrox certainly thought so, as they asked stars from both the men’s and women’s teams to give Robert Burns’ ‘Tae a Moose’ their best shot.
And it made for hilarious scenes as some who aren’t even native speakers struggled to get to grips with Burns’ ancients Scots’ rhymes.
Take summer signing Ben Davies, for instance, who approached the task with trepidation.
The clip showed: “That’s not even real words, is it?”
Ryan Kent also seemed worried, saying: “This is proper Scottish, innit.”
Morelos added: “That’s too difficult for me, 100%”
John Souttar – brought up in Laurencekirk, Aberdeenshire – was less worried though.
He said: “That’s how everyone speaks in Brechin anyway.”
His central defensive partner Connor Goldson was another worried man.
He said that: “I can’t read that, I don’t know what that says” before getting stuck into the opening line – “wee sleakit cowrin’ timorous beastie”.
To be fair all of the Gers stars on the clip soldiered on dutifully until the end – and the fans seemed to love it an original piece of content by the club.
One wrote on social media: “Brilliant work by everyone.”
Another wrote: “Too funny.”
A third wrote: “One of my favourite Burns poems. Not the best rendition I’ve heard but…”
