A CHEEKY eBay user has posted an empty can of Irn-Bru on the popular auction site - for the eye-watering sum of £3,500.

The user, believed to be from the Lanark area, is trying to cash in on the can which was issued during the 2014 Commonwealth Games, which took place in Glasgow, and of which maker AG Barr was the lead sponsor.

“It does not contain soft drink.”

Originally, the can would have sold for around 70p.

AG Barr produced five million of the special edition cans in the run up to the games, which featured the company’s first-ever strongman from m1901, Aaron Brown.
