Ally McCoist believes a non-league wondergoal that became a viral hit may be better than Paul Gascoigne’s legendary volley against Scotland at Euro 1996!
Bromsgrove Sporting FC striker Jason Cowley became an internet sensation when a clip of his stunning goal against Corby Town was posted online last weekend.
His wonderful strike quickly drew comparisons with Gazza’s famous goal for England – which you can watch here, because why not? – as he flicked the ball over a defender’s head before slotting a perfectly-executed volley into the left corner.
McCoist, who was in a mischievous mood on Wednesday’s Sports Breakfast show on talkSPORT, came on as a substitute in that memorable game at the old Wembley.
And he poked fun at his old Rangers team-mate, and sensationally claimed the non-league star’s strike may well be better than Gazza’s.
McCoist: “I’m telling you, I reckon it might just have been better than Gascoigne’s against Scotland in ’96.”
Seaman: “No chance! It can’t possibly be!”
McCoist’s tongue was firmly in his cheek, though, as he later admitted Gazza’s strike was ‘one of the THE great goals’ in world football history.
