Ricky's Flower Power
The Daily Record 15th November 2003

DEACON Blue star Ricky Ross will lead the Tartan Army in a rousing anthem before today's big game.

He'll sing Flower of Scotland, hoping to stir the team to victory against Holland at Hampden.

Ricky said last night: ``I'm really proud. They called me up and I couldn't say no they offered me tickets as well.

``I'd given up hope of buying any and had even organised a party round the telly to watch the game.

``Now I'll do the song and get to watch the game it couldn't be better.''

It will be the first time he's sung Flower of Scotland in public, although he admitted: ``I've sung it before the bells on Hogmanay.''

Ricky added: ``I can't wear a kilt. I was made to wear a kilt as a child and it put me off wearing one for life.'' Rick Fulton
