Ally McCoist says he'd let Jude Bellingham “take out all of his daughters”, but rules out Jack Grealish

Ally McCoist has jokingly said Jude Bellingham could "take out all five of his daughters", but he wouldn’t let England teammate Jack Grealish near his granny.

The 60-year-old Rangers icon, who has graced our screens with some superb commentary throughout this winter's World Cup, was giving his verdict on England's 3-0 win over Senegal when the topic was brought up.

With the football world watching at the 60,000 capacity Al Bayt Stadium, the talented Bellingham produced a performance to remember on Sunday night.

He assisted Jordan Henderson's opener after some great play on the left wing before showcasing skill, strength and balance to find Phil Foden, who delivered a perfectly-weighted pass to Harry Kane.

Kane made it 2-0 before the half-time whistle with a trademark finish, and Arsenal's in-form winger Bukayo Saka would soon made it three. But let's be honest, the main topic of conversation was Bellingham.

On Monday morning, for example, popular pundit Ally McCoist was joined by talkSPORT host Laura Woods when the former Birmingham City midfielder was brought up in conversation again.

But rather than speaking about his talent on the pitch, McCoist suggested that if he had any daughters, then Bellingham would be in line to be his son-in-law.

“How good was he last night? I just think he is unbelievable last night,” McCoist beamed.

“I tell you something, I have five boys in the house but if I had five daughters I would probably let him take them all out at the same time. I would. I mean he is that kind of boy."

Moments later and, after a few giggles from Laura Woods, the brilliant McCoist compared Bellingham to one of his England teammates.

"With the greatest of respect, I wouldn’t let wee Jack Grealish near my granny," he laughed. "Jude, to be be fair, I’d let him take my five daughters out.

“I love wee Jack but he’s just too mischievous. Do you know what I mean? I’d let Jude take my daughters out if I had any.”

Bellingham received plenty of compliments from pundits and fans alike on Sunday night. Even teammate Phil Foden got involved by saying the Borussia Dortmund man will one day become the world's best midfielder.

"I don't want to big him up too much because he is still young, but he's one of the most gifted players I have ever seen," Foden told ITV.

"He has no weakness in his game. I think he will be the best midfielder in the world."

Jordan Henderson is another big fan. "I can't keep saying nice things about him because we're talking about a one-off," he told BBC Sport. "He's only young and we just need to let him play football - but he is incredible."
