Rowdy Scotland fans warned "we'll destroy the English b******s" ahead of Friday's Euros clash against their historic rivals.

The Scots were pictured flooding out of King’s Cross station on Thursday as they made the trip down for the highly anticipated Group D fixture.

The Tartan Army gathered around Leicester Square and other famous places across the capital to show their support while taunting England fans.

Sparklers were lit as they partied into the evening, with fans letting loose in the English sun as they took dips in the Leicester Square fountain and climbed William Shakespeare’s statue.

One Scottish fan, Cameron Lynus told the Sun Online: "Scotland are gonna win, absolutely.

"We’ll destroy the English b******s."

Another Scot, 20-year-old Archie Gardiner said: “Its nationality that matters. A matter of pride.

“John McGinn will score, he’s better than Zidane.”

The Met Police had advised Scotland fans not to travel unless they had tickets to watch the game but that did not deter them from making the trip – many having booked pubs for the 8pm kick-off.

This comes following the Met’s issuing of a 48-hour dispersal order in central London allowing police to crackdown on trouble makers from 3pm Thursday until 3pm Saturday on the West End streets.

However, the Scots remained undeterred as they cheered on their national team with the hope of picking up their first points of the competition, following a 2-0 defeat to Czech Republic on Monday.

England meanwhile comfortably beat World Cup finalists Croatia 1-0 courtesy of a Raheem Sterling strike.

Manager Gareth Southgate, who beat Scotland as a player in Euro 96, was adamant his side would not take the challenge lightly despite England's great record against the Scots at Wembley (18 wins in 32).

He said: "I've never been involved with an England team that didn't respect Scotland and didn't appreciate how difficult the games were going to be.

"They know the quality of players they're playing against. They're teammates with some of those players so they know exactly what they're capable of."

England were without centre-back Harry Maguire in their opener as Tyrone Mings stepped up with a huge performance, but Southgate has confirmed the Manchester United captain will play a part against Scotland.

He said: "Harry will be involved tomorrow. The decision we've got to make is whether he is ready to start, but we're really pleased with his progress.

"He's trained with the team for four or five days now and had no reaction. Each session he's involved with he gets more confident, I think he's on a really good path."
