Scotland's Commonwealth Games Opening Parade Uniform Suffers Backlash


Scotland's hopes of independence are about as remote as the country's national side making it to the 2018 World Cup, and to compound the misery just look at their Commonwealth Games opening parade attire.

Resembling Scots on the Braveheart battlefield, competitors will wear light blue with tartan wrap-arounds when they enter Celtic Park on 23 July.

Women will also wear a stone-coloured leather bag across their bodies in an attempt to resemble the St Andrew's flag, while men will carry a traditional sporran.

Glasgow native Jilli Blackwood designed the outfits, but the nod to Scottish heritage has gone down as well as Paul Gascoigne's goal at Euro '96.

Altogether now... Ohhhhhh nooooooo.
