George Burley backs We Have A Dream

Daily Record confirmed this morning that Scotland boss George Burley has thrown his weight behind the Tartan Army's latest World Cup anthem yesterday.

The manager recorded a part for We Have A Dream in a bid to raise money for Children In Need. He said: "Luckily they didn't ask me to sing. I just shouted 'penalty'. But I know the song is going to make a great anthem. Children In Need is a great charity and I know the Tartan Army will be on top voice at the weekend."

Burley will join a host of celebrities including Samuel L Jackson, Dougray Scott and Ally McCoist on the single, with all proceeds going to need kids in Scotland.

Ugly Betty star Ashley Jensen also joined the line-up when she recorded a part in Los Angeles yesterday.

And at Saturday's World Cup qualifier against Norway, more than 50,000 supporters at Hampden will be recorded roaring along to the track at halftime, helped by a karaoke style prompt on the big screen.

The remix of the classic 1982 World Cup anthem is being produced by BA Robertson, who wrote the original song.

And Children In Need's Pudsey was in the studio yesterday to give him a helping hand.
The charity mascot joined the Gospel Truth Choir and Miss Scotland Nieve Jennings at Ca Va studios in Glasgow - where the original version was recorded.
