Ally McCoist's affable brand of commentary once again has tongues wagging with the Rangers hero stealing the show during Leeds' clash with Crystal Palace

McCoist is one of the most popular commentators in the UK and the announcement that he would be part of Amazon Prime's Premier League coverage was met with much excitement.

The former Scotland striker is known for his enthusiasm which many feel puts other UK commentators to shame.

Within minutes of the mid-table Premier League game at Elland Road kicking off, his name was trending on Twitter.

And there was near universal praise for the commentary team of McCoist and Jon Champion who some felt made an otherwise forgettable first half watchable.

@CS_72_ tweeted: "A canny listen to commentary unless it’s Ally McCoist, the man talks too much sense.

@DMccobe added: "The best thing about football being on Amazon prime is Ally McCoist commentating."

@DomBooth19 said: "Watching Leeds v Palace purely for the Jon Champion x Ally McCoist commentary combo, thank you very much."

And @JonnyMacguire ambitiously concluded: "Petition for Ally McCoist to commentate every football watch ever."
