Barry Ferguson nearly lost it this week when an American interviewer pulled a hilarious prank on the ex-Rangers midfielder and former Celtic favourite Simon Donnelly.
With the latest instalment of the Old Firm derby set to hit our screens on Sunday afternoon, the guys over at Ladbrokes decided to set Ferguson and Donnelly up for an awkward encounter with an inept interviewer.
Little did Ferguson and Donnelly realise, that their former team-mates Alex Rae and Mark Wilson were supplying presenter RJ with all sorts of weird and wonderful questions.
And Ferguson was very quick to bite after RJ made the brave decision to mock his son’s decision to pursue a football career in the States.
Luckily the five-time Scottish Premier League title winner stuck around though, as RJ went on to ask, if he ever finished a game of a football and his thoughts on whether Carlos Pena will play against Celtic:

Eventually the pair catch on that RJ might not be the real deal but that didn’t stop it from being a brilliant watch.
Fair play to Barry and Simon, they did well here!
