But the dynamic duo were separated when Woods upped sticks to front TNT Sports’ football coverage, much to the disappointment of many.

McCoist also inked a deal to be part of the channel’s coverage of the Champions and Premier League.

And they were reunited on Tuesday night ahead of defending champions Manchester City‘s clash with Red Star Belgrade.

The pair had an emotional brace as the cameras rolled, with their hug being shown to viewers moments later.

And Woods couldn’t help but express her delight at reuniting with the Scot, which she conveyed with a cheeky dig at fellow presenter Rio Ferdinand.

Woodsy said: “We haven’t also forgotten about Rio Ferdinand. We subbed him out and we subbed somebody else in.

“Not quite like for like, but I would say an improvement in every possible and conceivable area.

“Mr Ally McCoist is here. And look, it was a lovely welcome.”


An over-the-moon McCoist, 60, replied to his pal: “It was.”

Woods, who fought back the tears when she announced her talkSPORT departure in June, then said: “It’s been too long since we’ve been apart.”

Former Rangers and Scotland hitman McCoist was buzzing over his reception and joked: “Ferdinand never got a welcome like that, did he?

“I’ll tell you that, Laura.”

That sparked laughter from Woods, who said: “He definitely didn’t.”

Footie fans were quick to comment on the pair’s heartwarming reunion, with one saying: “The A-Team.”

Another said: “Great to see, make a brilliant team.”

And another said: “Everyone loves Laura, everyone loves Ally….what a team!!!!”

One remarked: “The dream team reunited. Love to see it.”

talkSPORT even chimed in, tweeting with two love-heart emojis: “These two.”
