MICHY BATSHUAYI prepared to face Scotland tomorrow night in style - by going commando in a kilt and playing the bagpipes.

The Chelsea and Belgium striker, 25, is never one to shy away from the limelight so jumped at the chance to get involved.

In a video uploaded by Belgium's Twitter page, he is joined by Thorgan Hazard for a lesson from the pros.

Eric Remy from Ypres Surrey Pipes & Drums put the pair through their paces.

But as with tradition, he was not going to let them do it halfheartedly.

So that meant off with the pants and on with the kilt and sporran - to protect "everything that's very important" - before they gave the pipes a go.

The pair joked with each other, with Bat-man pretending to flirt with the "cute" Hazard.

Remy said: "You remove your trousers and lay them next to our pants over there."

OFF WITH THE PANTS

A shocked Batshuayi asked: "Is it a joke?" before soon coming to the realisation that he would indeed have to drop the kecks.

He added: "We have to take off our shorts and put them there to show them we're not wearing them."

With that, off they came and it was time to start playing.

To Hazard's surprise and amazement, Batshuayi was actually rather good - unlike Eden's younger brother.

The striker produced a strong, clear sound immediately to the delight of the pros.

He even threw in a bit of bit of a jig for good measure.

MICHY MAGIC

Thorgan reluctantly admitted: "Mine is broken.

"Michy, he's good at this.

"I think you did much better than me.

"I think we better stick with football."

Batshuayi agreed.

He said: "Yes, I think so too. I prefer leaving this to the Scots and pick up a football instead."

Batshuayi spent the second half of the season on loan at Crystal Palace  -scoring seven goals - and could see himself back in the frame at Chelsea as the transfer ban takes effect.

He came off the bench in the 3-0 win over Kazakhstan on Saturday and will be hoping to be given a starting spot by Roberto Martinez against the Scots.

The Red Devils have won all three of their Euro 2020 qualifiers so far and will be expected to maintain their perfect record when Steve Clarke's side head to Brussels.
