What Scottish football lacks in quality, it certainly makes up for in laughs.
The SPL may be a one-horse race every year, but around the country north of the border a whole host of bizarre incidents have happened in the past few years.
Here’s a selection of the best:
1 When a club literally deleted their own website
2 When a player was treated for hypothermia after a massive sesh
3 When Inverness Caledonian Thistle liked a porn tweet from their official Twitter account
4 When Livingston and Raith Rovers blamed each other for losing the keys to their dressing rooms during a match
5 This opening to BT Sports’ Scottish Football Extra show
6 Their players on Twitter
7 When Gavin Gunning literally picked up the ball and walked off the pitch cos he’d had enough
(7:02 in, we really don’t blame you for not wanting to watch all nine minutes)
8 When Hearts did this
9 When the quality on show was made all too clear
10 When Caley did the same thing, lost by a bigger margin, and the manager was left genuinely fuming
11 When Aberdeen had a chronic seagull problem at their home ground
12 When Stenhousemuir announced two new signings in a McDonald’s
13 When Sky Sports fell for this classic Scottish prank
14 When Rod Stewart turned up to do the cup draw reportedly absolutely pished
15 When a linesman vomited on the side of the pitch and the ref showed him a red card
16 When Celtic fans were told by their own club to have a wash before they came to the game
17 When a fan ran out of the stadium with the match ball after it was fired over the bar
18 When Jason Cummings got banned from Maccy D’s for this
19 Actually, Jason Cummings in general
20 Or, as he likes to be know, ‘Cumdog’
21 When Berwick Rangers’ media staff went AWOL
22 When Rangers’ game was delayed because their ball was stuck in a hedge
23 This absolute belter of an injury
24 And this one
Please, Scottish football, never change.
