Ally McCoist has broken his silence on his five-a-side "spat" with pop star Olly Murs.

The pair were involved in a faux shouting match after a talkSPORT five-a-side match - with the Rangers hero's side coming out on top in an 18-17 contest.

And at full-time, McCoist and Murs appeared to come face-to-face in a furious confrontation over the match.

Footage showed the singer waving his finger at McCoist - with the Ibrox icon also playing up to the cameras.

However, Murs has since revealed he had friends who thought the "Lennon-McCoist moment" was genuine.

 "Oh Ally, I've been getting messages all weekend," said the singer. "'What happened with you and Ally McCoist?!"

McCoist replied: "I'm the opposite, the absolute opposite. Everyone that's been messaging me, and I mean everybody, knew it was a laugh and wind-up. Did your mates think it was real?"

"A lot of the football lads that watched it, they could see we were having a laugh at the end," said Murs. "But I think for the non-football lovers who don't watch the actual game, they were like 'what happened, what's going on?' Nothing at all!"

McCoist then joked: "Olly, I think it was down to our professional acting in the situation, what do you think? I think we were too good."

And Murs concluded: "Obviously we love each other! It was just a bit of fun at the end, we thought we'd re-enact the Lennon-McCoist moment!

"It was such a great afternoon, a really great day being among all you pros.

"It's just a shame everyone seemed to think you and I had a spat."
