Ally McCoist has owned up to cheating during her time as Question of Sport captain after being hilariously confronted by rival show captain John Parrott.
The Rangers legend was a captain on the popular sports quiz show for nearly a decade between 1997 and 2006 – and was known for his impressive sports knowledge.
But snooker world champion Parrott revealed McCoist was once useless at tricking his opponents into getting the answers right.

McCoist, who has been on the show for almost a decade, was happily tackled by his rival captain John Parrott
Speaking to his old friend on talkSPORT, Parrott said: ‘Honestly, you’ve never seen anything like it. He used to write the names on his hand and everything.
‘You know when someone is doing their exams at school, it’s incredible.
‘There was this girl high jumper on the picture board in the last round and she was asked “Do you know who that is?” and he said “No, but maybe in a minute” and he held up his sleeve and his name was there.’
In true Ally McCoist style, she joked back: ‘You have some memories! He is actually Bulgarian and I will tell you how hard it is.
‘His name started at the top of my elbow and just ended at my wrist.’

Amid the hilarious exchange, it was revealed that McCoist wasn’t the only one bucking the rules.
‘Honestly, it’s funny. I got him back a few years later,’ Parrott revealed.
‘I went down early for one of the shows and they used to do the quiz between the teams in the pub quiz and there was a run through.
‘I came down early and there were all the one-minute answers, and I thought “Aw yeah that’ll do me!”.
‘Coming into the one-minute round, McCoist was saying “Jesus JP, you’re on fire!”
‘This is unbelievable, cheating has been taken to a whole new level.’
McCoist established himself in the media after his playing days, and regularly provides entertainment on either radio or television.
