Republic of Ireland legend and Derby County coach Shay Given spectacularly struggled to deliver some St. Patrick's Day greetings ahead of Wednesday's celebrations.
A Paddy's Day like few others, things were pretty tame as people everywhere tried to mark March 17th the world over despite the obvious COVID-19 restrictions.
On Wednesday's OTB AM, host Ger Gilroy regaled us all with a Paddy's Day in Buenos Aires and the insanely big deal Argentina makes of the Irish patron saint's day.
As prominent Irish individuals being rolled out to make the event on social media channels everywhere, Derby County opted to throw first-team coach Shay Given under the bus.
With hilarious results, the Donegal native seriously struggled.
We got there in the end 😉

Hired as a goalkeeping coach by the club in 2018 during Frank Lampard's tenure, Shay Given has gone on to become a first-team coach under the management of Wayne Rooney.
Drafted in as the new manager shortly after Phillip Cocu was sacked late last year, Derby appear now to have realistically overcome any fear of being relegated from the EFL Championship.

Speaking to Rams TV earlier this year, Given outlined his new role.
"Being a goalkeeping coach speaks for itself," he stated, "you look after the goalkeepers and when Wayne took over, he asked me to change roles and have more responsibility with the guys in the team in general, which I have enjoyed.
"I always saw my long-term plan, if you like, to be more as a coach or an assistant and getting involved with outfield players as well. I am happy to be involved with the outfield players, team selection and set plays and just enjoying working with all the players rather than just three or four of the goalkeepers. It is a nice change for me."
