THREE Lions superfan Andy Milne has once again been making headlines on social media.

The former Grange School biology teacher has further cemented his place as a cult hero among football fans.

Barnton resident Andy can always be seen front and centre during England matches and their Euro opener against Serbia was no different.

His iconic smile was caught by the BBC’s cameras throughout the game as Gareth Southgate’s men got their tournament off to a winning start, with Real Madrid superstar Jude Bellingham providing the only goal of the game.

Needless to say, social media users couldn’t be happier to see Andy back celebrating on the small screen.

One X user, Pete Jackson, posted: “Andy Milne - absolute legend. He taught me science in the 90s.”

Another, Sam Munnery, wrote: “Just amazed how he always manages to get the producer's attention - final whistle goes, first crowd shot is Andy Milne!

Perhaps @LordSmythe summed it up best, however, posting: “There’s only one Andy Milne.”

Andy has been in attendance at almost every men’s World Cup since Spain 1982 - when he was a 19-year-old chemistry student at the University of Manchester.

The Manchester United fan went viral during the 2022 edition in Qatar due to his likeness to the former England manager Steve McLaren and affectionately became known as ‘that World Cup guy’.

Andy is also a big advocate of the women’s game, having helped establish the girl’s football team at The Grange, ensuring his daughter Laila could participate.

Last year, he followed the Lionesses to Australia as Sarina Wiegman’s side narrowly lost out to Spain in the final of the Women’s World Cup.

Along with the rest of the nation, Andy will be hoping the men’s team can go one further this summer and bring football home.
