Jimmy Bullard was in Scotland this week to take on Rangers star Andy Halliday for Soccer AM’s You Know The Drill feature.
And the former English international came out on top, beating the Ibrox midfielder at a drill set by manager Mark Warburton.
The premise of the feature is to give fans an insight into a drill players could be faced with while training.
This time around Bullard and Halliday were required to chip the ball off the crossbar from the edge of the box before running on to the rebound and hitting it into the net without the ball bouncing.
Sounds tough, doesn’t it?
Well, they both found it tough too – until Bullard stepped up, nailed it and went bonkers by running around the Murray Park training ground screaming before sliding in front of the camera and giving former Brentford boss Warburton a huge hug:

Bullard looks like he enjoyed himself.
You also heard what he had to say about almost playing in Scotland – albeit it was with Celtic, who made a loan move for the midfielder during his time at Hull, but the switch broke down over wage demands.
Speaking about what the Ibrox club has to offer, Bullard told rangers.co.uk:
This is a proper football club, and watching the boys train there, I couldn’t believe how sharp they were, and how young they all are too.
I never played for a big football club, but for me, this is one of the big football clubs, and if the timing was right, then I would have jumped at the chance [to play here].
Mark [Warburton] is top-drawer, and they’re still talking about him now at Brentford and the football he plays as well.
I’ve been around a few football clubs this year, and the half-hour session I watched there is as sharp as I’ve seen.
I know a few Brentford fans and they were gutted when they lost him.
