The gloves Scotland goalkeeper David Marshall wore against Serbia are to go on display at the Tennent’s visitor centre in Glasgow to mark a new multi-year partnership between the lager brand and the Scottish FA.

Marshall’s penalty save was the culmination of a dramatic Euro 2020 qualifier that sent Scotland on the way to its first major men’s tournament in 23 years.

His gloves will form part of a display at the Tennent’s Story, tracking the history of the brand and its partnerships.

The new partnership will see Tennent’s support the Scotland Men’s and Women’s National Teams, with the immediate prospect of hosting matches at Hampden during Euro 2020. The brand will activate football throughout the summer in both the on and off-trade, while Tennent’s will continue to enjoy rights to pour Tennent Caledonian brands at Hampden Park.

Tennent’s Senior Brand Manager Cameron Matthews, said: “As the original supporter of Scottish football our relationship with the Scottish FA goes back to 1974, and we’ve lived every moment since then shoulder to shoulder with the tartan army.

“When David saved that final penalty in Belgrade we know a few cans of Tennent’s Lager will have been raised in his honour, but we wanted to go one step further and give fans the chance to toast an iconic piece of Scottish football history – his match gloves.”

David Marshall added: “The gloves I wore that night will always be a reminder of that final penalty – and let’s not forget the VAR check afterwards – and I’m excited that I’m able to share that with the fans through the installation at the Tennent’s visitor centre.”
