Charlie Adam is going viral on social media after producing a contender for ‘assist of the season’ during Dundee’s clash against St Mirren on Saturday afternoon.
But there’s one major problem: it’s an ‘assist’ for the opposing team.
The veteran midfielder, 36, dribbled the ball near his own byline before producing a Johan Cruyff-esque turn back into trouble and inexplicably passing across the face of his own goal.
Adam’s right-footed pass fell straight to Alex Greive, who made no mistake from close range.
It was an absolute gift from the former Liverpool and Scotland midfielder.

Oh, Charlie! What was he thinking?!
It was only a couple of weeks ago that he went viral on social media for a truly embarrassing dive and now this. Bet the poor bloke can’t wait until the end of the season.
This is the greatest dive Scottish football has ever seen 😂 10/10 for Charlie Adam 👏 pic.twitter.com/8mwtj5W2oO— Callum Bell (@Calbell0) April 23, 2022
Dundee are fighting to avoid relegation from the Scottish Premiership and that’s the last thing they needed from their captain and most experienced player.
St Mirren went on to secure a 2-0 victory with Custis Lee Main netting for the hosts after half-time.
Let’s check out some of the reaction to Adam’s inadvertent ‘assist’:
