Football fan in goalie gloves slaps opposition players as they come out tunnel

A football prankster in goalie gloves was seen slapping Dundee players as they came out of the tunnel.

Footage showed a Kilmarnock supporter perched over the arch near the dugout where the opposition came out, hitting each one as they emerged out onto the pitch at Rugby Park on Tuesday evening for the Scottish League Cup contest.

The players came out none the wiser before being tapped over the head by the sponge gloves, with each one looking back quite muddled about what had just struck them.

Some cottoned on to what was happening. Former Celtic player Tony Watt managed to stick out an arm to knock away the glove as it came down.

The viral incident has picked up plenty of reactions online. One said: “Things we have to pretend we don’t like to see.” Another stated: “Let them know you’re there. Enjoy it.”

A third replied: “That's so Cinch Premiership.”

Things went from bad to worse for Dundee. Killies’ Kyle Lafferty's early strike from the penalty spot opened the proceedings – that was before Glenn Middleton equalised.

Winger Daniel Armstrong then sealed the game for the hosts in the second half, nodding in from Jordan Jones’ cross.

The victory means Kilmarnock will play in the Scottish League Cup semi-finals for the first time since winning the competition ten years ago.

Dundee United manager Liam Fox rued the game after the defeat: "Disappointing, really disappointing opportunity that we've passed up to get to Hampden. Massively disappointed.

"I thought it was a nervy game, didn't think there was much in it. We've switched off from a cross ball which has ultimately cost us tonight.
