GMS are not too keen on seagulls but we draw the line at the sort of treatment one unlucky bird received during a pre-season friendly in Scotland between Hibernian and Dunfermline.
Hibs defender Callum Booth was under pressure in his own area and decided the best course of action was to put his foot through the ball and get it up the pitch.
He did just that and it turned out to be a successful attempt, getting picked up by his teammate on the halfway line.
There was a huge cheer as the ball was in the air and it turned out the clearance was not quite so successful for a seagull that was swooping low over the pitch. Booth's booted lob actually hit the feathery spectator, so GMS thought the cheers were a bit out of order.
No lasting damage
Any concerns about the animal's welfare were quickly dispelled as it readjusted after the mid-air collision and flew away to carry on stealing ice creams at the seaside and going through bins.
