DELIGHTED Ally McCoist gives Scotland’s largest Sikh temple the thumbs-up.

The smiling Rangers boss was among 3,000 guests at yesterday’s public opening of the £4million Gurdwara in Pollokshields, Glasgow.

Organisers were overwhelmed by the numbers at the event — but the visitors didn’t go hungry as local volunteers had prepared 10,000 chapatis, 3,000 vegetarian samosas and 15,000 cups of tea.

Charandeep Singh, of the Gurdwara management committee, said: “It has been fantastic and such a great day.”

But all the excitement was a bit too much for one little girl — who burst into tears when she met Deputy First Minister Nicola Sturgeon.
