AMY Macdonald has turned down the chance to sing Flower of Scotland at Hampden again because she fears being targeted for abuse.


The singer was asked to return to sing the unofficial national anthem ahead of the crucial upcoming European Championship qualifiers against Germany and Poland.

However the songstress is too nervous about performing the song after she fluffed her lines while singing it before a game against Wales in March, 2013.

She said the incident led to her receiving abuse on social media and doesn’t want to put herself through it again.

Amy, who turns 28 this week, revealed she had been approached to sing at the games in September and October during an online question and answer session with fans.

After fan Sandy Munro asked “When are you doing Flower of Scotland at Hampden again”, Amy replied: “It means too much to me that I get too nervous.

“They asked me to do Poland and Germany but I just couldn’t.

“Don’t need the haters.”

Amy apologised on Twitter after her slip-up at the Wales match but it didn’t stop the abuse.

She told her followers: “I know the words but don’t know anyone who could go on to a pitch in front of 40,000 and not get nervous. Sorry, I’m not perfect.

“Always so proud to sing our anthem. Sorry for nerves - hope passion came across.”

She added: “Singing Flower of Scotland was the only thing that made me nervous. I don’t get nervous doing my own shows.

“I’d done it so many times before and I was nervous as hell but I managed to hold together. But that time I just had a mind blank and the nerves took hold.

“It felt like I was silent for about 10 minutes.”

Nina Nesbitt and X Factor’s Nicky McDonald have filled Amy’s shoes at recent games but the fans, and the SFA, miss her performances.

Bosses told her she was the best singer they’d ever had for keeping the Tartan Army in time.

German national team manager Joachim Loew is also a big fan and even asked Amy to sing his country’s anthem before a game.

But after her traumatic experience at Hampden, she politely declined.

No announcement has yet been made on who will perform Flower of Scotland at the upcoming games.

Earlier this year the Tartan Army voted in favour of having the song declared as the country’s official national anthem but MSPs have rejected a petition calling for the move.

Amy, who is dating Ross County footballer Richard Foster, also revealed she is currently working on her fourth studio album which will be released next year.

She said: “I feel so loved. So many people asking when I’m touring and when’s album 4 coming.

“Next year. Thanks for your awesome support.”

What the line SHOULD have been is bold

Oh flower of Scotland
When will we see
Your like again
That fought and died for
Your wee bit hill and glen
And stood against him
Proud Edward's army
And sent him homeward
To Think again


Sounds as if Amy was two lines ahead of herself :p

So....do we think we have a song for album number 4 about fluffing the national anthem at Hampden lol

Just at the beginning but really 2 or 3 words that's all! You're right, this hymn is one of the most beautiful, and Amy still sings beautifully and with much love for her country !

I'm not familiar enough with the Scottish national anthem to tell where she got it wrong compared to the other versions I have seen on YouTube. I think it shows more for Amy and a her professionalism as a performer that she didn't fumble and carried on singing in front of such a huge crowd.

Flower of Scotland is one of the best anthems and Amy always sings it with so much passion. No one is perfect, but Amy comes close!
