Watch the incredible John Souttar dive from a new angle

A new angle has surfaced highlighting John Souttar’s ridiculous dive to win a free kick against St Mirren on Sunday.

Watching someone that is 6 foot 3 and weighing 14 stones falling down is always uncomfortable but the Scotland defender managed to make it look very very awkward.

There was no real threat with the ball moving towards the corner flag and little prospect of Conor McMenamin being able to turn Souttar and dispossess him.

The defender clearly had some worries as he went down in a pre-planned way with both arms going out to cushion his fall as he hit the turf.

Referee Nick Walsh had a clear view of the incident, there was no contact whatsoever with Souttar’s fall embarrassingly bad.

A free kick was awarded, Souttar’s red face never changed in shade with his side going on to win the match 3-0 to join St Mirren in second place in the SPFL Premiership table.

The match turned in the 28th minute when Ryan Strain was sent off for deliberate handball with James Tavernier scoring from the penalty spot.

Just before half-time VAR opted not to take any action when Conor Goldson man-handled a Saints player from the penalty box into an advertising hoarding behind the goal.

On Monday Walsh was back at his day job working on the fitness of Murray Park starlets at Boclair Academy in Bearsden.
