DAVID MAY has revealed an egg-cellent way to beat the system while drinking in Tier 2 pubs.
The Manchester United hero showed off a receipt that included 63 pints, 12 glasses of fizz and just ONE Scotch egg.
Bars must offer a 'substantial meal' to reopen under new Covid regulations in England.
Pub goers were delighted to find out that a single Scotch egg counts as a meal.
Unsurprisingly, people have immediately made the most of the loophole in the system.
May, who played for United from 1994 until 2003, shared a photograph of a receipt from a bar called The Refinery in London.
Over £400 was spent on pints of Peroni and £83.40 was spent on Prosecco on what appeared to be a wild night out.
But that was allowed in the Tier 2 boozer as the group had ordered ONE chorizo Scotch egg.
It is known whether it is May's receipt – but he shared it to his Twitter page.
One fan joked: "Got to line your stomach."
Another added: "One man's Scotch egg is another man's substantial meal."
And one Twitter user said: "Thirsty were you May?"
May made 85 appearances for United after joining from Blackburn Rovers in 1994.
But the two-time Premier League winner went on a 12-day drinking binge after injury put an end to his Red Devils career.
The 50-year-old even ended up sharing a £200 bottle of champagne with a tramp on a park bench.
