Football fans will resort to a number of actions when their team are playing particularly poorly.
Some will boo and swear blind at underperforming stars, others will deflect their anger on to an unwitting referee, while some even attempt to confront the players they feel are at fault.
One Rangers fan, however, came up with his own unique solution on Wednesday night, during his side’s home defeat to Aberdeen.
After yet another Aberdeen attack in the first half, Ryan Christie was allowed to fire a shot over the crossbar as Rangers threatened to cave in at Ibrox.

Sensing what was about to come, the fan took matters into his own hands and hot-tailed it out of the stadium with the ball tucked safely under his arm.
Unfortunately for the young gentleman, and Rangers, officials were able to locate another matchball and the Dons subsequently ran out 2-1 winners, ending a 26-year wait for a victory on the road at Rangers.
Graeme Shinnie broke the deadlock in a first half briefly interrupted by the lack of a ball, and Celtic loanee Ryan Christie made it 2-0, before Martyn Waghorn grabbed a late consolation for the hosts.
The defeat left the Glasgow club nine points behind the Dons in the SPFL table, and just six points ahead of fourth place St Johnstone.
