A Photo Tribute To Drunk Scottish FansS

Today's Scotland-England friendly—only the fourth matchup between the two since the annual fixture was stopped in 1989—played out under the specter of next year's referendum on Scottish independence. So the Tartan Army was out in full force, gathering in London's Trafalgar Square before heading out to Wembley.

They were loud, colorful, drunk, and delightful, and though England prevailed 3-2, we've pulled some of our favorite photos off the wire to celebrate the Scots. (All photos from Getty Images.)
