Watch: ‘He’s Onside Referee! Keep Your Stinking Rotten Flag Down!’ – Ray Hudson At His Best During Barca/Celta Vigo

Ray Hudson really, truly loves Barcelona’s Lionel Messi… 

The Scottish commentator’s love-in for the Argentine star has become infamous over the past decade with countless Hudson quotes going viral online. It’s impossible to run through them all but, we’ve included four of our favourites below;

“He abides in the magnetic spectrum of genius with the ball. Pure footballing magic.”

“He arrives like a ghost in the night. There ain’t any tracking of him… X-rays couldn’t track this guy down.”

“Angles mean nothing to this man — he could decorate a rose and make it look better.”

“He could follow you into a revolving door and come out first!”

On Saturday afternoon, Barcelona took on Celta Vigo at the Nou Camp with Ray Hudson on duty to once again hit orgasmic tones every time Lionel Messi touched the ball.

The commentary highlights below are worth watching in their entirety. However, the best moment almost certainly arrives when Hudson loses the rag after the linesman incorrectly rules out a Barcelona goal after an exquisite ball from Lionel Messi.

Check out the commentary montage in full below or skip to 45 seconds in to hear Hudson’s ‘stinking, rotten flag’ rant.
