The hit BBC Scotland comedy is back on screens tonight for its last-ever series, having been a regular fixture in the schedules since 2014.

Grado and co-star Manjot Sumal have delighted viewers since the very first season in their roles as traffic cop duo PC McKirdy and PC Surjit Singh.

Series 8 kicks off on the BBC Scotland channel tonight, with all episodes also available to view on the iPlayer.

And ahead of the launch, the BBC shared a sketch featuring PCs McKirdy and Singh on social media – and it’s gone down a storm.

The duo are often seen trying to find ways to pass the time as they patrol the streets of Glasgow, and this time around, it turns to impersonations.

After musing about football commentary, Grado as McKirdy suddenly launches into a hilarious impression of Ally McCoist.

The Rangers icon has become a huge hit in the footie commentary box, winning over legions of new fans after his star turn for ITV at the World Cup.

Coining one of McCoist’s most-used phrases right away, McKirdy gives it: “I’ll tell you something Darrell, make no mistake about it.

“On first viewing, I thought he’s not speeding. But as I watch it back, he is. He absolutely is, it’s brilliant.”

PC Singh, impressed, replies: “Is that McCoist?”

McKirdy isn’t finished there, as he then breaks into an impression of Sky Sports commentator Ian Crocker, with David Attenborough also not safe from the comedy coppers.

Things then take a hilarious turn when their fun is interrupted as they’re forced to pull over a speeding driver.

But McKirdy can’t seem to shake off McCoist, as he hysterically reads the driver the riot act while in full McCoist character.

After a hilarious back and forth, he says to the camera: “It was like I was in a trance.

“You know, I just couldn’t get out of Ally McCoist’s persona.”

Grado shared the clip on his own social media, and plenty of famous faces reacted.

Rangers star Scott Arfield responded with a laughing emoji.

Teammate Allan McGregor also seemed impressed as he liked Grado’s video.

Grado’s Two Doors Down co-star and famed footie impressionist Jonathan Watson said: “Brilliant Grado… make no mistake about it!”

Crocker also branded it “absolutely tremendous.”

A few big-name American wrestlers also appeared in the comments – rather baffled by what was going on!

Former WWE star Chris Hero posted: “I get zero references here. I still laughed.”

Rangers fans were loving it too, with one saying: “Grado for Rangers TV!”
