But is that not a well-known Scottish tune?

Speaking as one who detests anything to do with football I watched the clip with some reservation but found it quite inspiring. The Scottish tune came as a bit of a surprise and made me wonder how it came to be used by a football club but both the playing and the instrument were excellent.
I must seek out some more conventional recordings of the organ.

If ti is Paul then I don't think I recognise it.
It's Loch Lomond. When I was at primary school, it was what the teacher who could play the piano played for us to walk in and out of assembly to, so it got pretty ingrained!

What I found surprising was that the organ (or organs - both may have been in use) could shout down 1000 football fans, and we all know how loud they can be!
Like Handsoff, I detest football too. Perhaps that's evident from my above comment!
Incidentally, I googled the words to the Koeln football club's anthem, then tried to decipher them using Google translate. What came out was equally indecipherable, and I can only assume the words are some local dialect - Koelsch?

Just found this clip featuring the late and great John Scott at Merton College, Oxford.
