Andrew Gray poked fun at Hibs fans tweeting the supermarket saying: “Hi @Tesco can you please remind me when your store at Gorgie Road, Edinburgh is opening?” with a picture of the new stand under construction.

The ever-professional Tesco tweeted back to the query stating: “Hi Andrew, I have looked into this for you and we do not have a store opening in Gorgie Rd Edinburgh. - Rocsi”

However, it was Andrew who had the last laugh and took aim at rival fans, replying: “Oh really? What’s happened hibs fans?”

The first game in front of the new Main Stand is due to be played in November.

The new main stand will take the capacity to over 20,000.
