Dons fans try to bribe their way back into match with ice cream

Dons fans try to bribe their way back into match with ice cream

This is the moment when two Aberdeen fans attempted to bribe their way back into Caledonian Stadium with an ice cream.

Aberdeen FC fans Stew Milne and Steven Cooper decided to abandon the match against Inverness Caledonian Thistle early after their team went 2-0 down after just 29 minutes on Saturday.

Having left the stadium for the sanctuary of an ice cream van outside, a dejected Stew tweeted his plans to head home after the match proved to be too much of a disappointment.

But within seconds of purchasing their cones, the pair heard the roar of the crowd as Aberdeen's Ash Taylor netted to bring the game back into contention at 2-1.

The desperate duo, determined to get back into the stadium for a potential equaliser, took to Twitter to lament the problem of getting back inside, with one user suggesting they sweeten up a security guard by offering up a cone in exchange for re-entry.

The pair's icy exchange was snapped by @SouthStandDon, who shared the image on Twitter of Stew pleading with security, with Steven's arm outstretched with the cone in his hand.

Stew said: "We were two-nil down and couldn't be bothered, so we left and then we scored.

"We tried to get back in by saying we just went for a fag and then said I'd give [the security guard] the ice cream."

Tweeting later that day about his odd ice cream encounter, his post ‘My day in 4 pictures’ quickly spread across Twitter, garnering thousands of retweets and shares.

Although security refused to let them in, Stew said the pair managed to sneak into the stadium - albeit into the home section.

He added: "We just walked round to the Caley end and a door was open."

Unfortunately for Stew and Steven, that elusive equaliser never came and their team slumped to their second consecutive defeat.
