Fans expect that footballers must be dining in Michelin-starred haunts that are the favourites of pop stars, actors and other high-flyers in the entertainment industry.
However, it has been revealed that Scotland's national team suffered the indignity of eating at Burger King in the Georgian airport after their recent European qualifier against Germany.
This has provoked widespread mirth among fans and commentators alike, however one ex-pro who is less than impressed is Scotland's own ex-international, Pat Nevin.

Nevin played for Chelsea most notably, and also amassed 28 appearances between 1986-96 for his national side.
He blasted Scottish FA officials for their organisation of the trip as a whole.
He began: "I actually mentioned it on the way out to one of the Scotland officials.
"I told him there were 18 half-decent seats on the plane and the players should get them because they'd have decent legroom. That wasn't done."
But what annoyed Nevin the most "was that after the game, the squad had several hours milling about in the airport. The players were left mingling with the fans and with journalists".
He continued: "There was one piece of good organization. The players lined up very well in front of Burger King, which was where they ate. That’s what they had — burger and chips after the game. This is absolutely not a criticism of the players".
It seems incredible that such a professional organisation could refuel at a fast-food restaurant ahead of playing the world champions, and Nevin went on to call the entire escapade "disorganised".
On the evidence of this pit-stop, you have to suspect he may be right.
