Prior to their friendly against Mexico, Scotland were joined on the pitch by a mascot bear and his ‘handler’ in a bizarre incident.
The players were taking in the surroundings at the famous Azteca Stadium ahead of their 1-0 defeat to the Mexicans. While they waited to warm up they congregated in groups knocking balls around when the mascot approached.
Keen to get involved the bear took a pass and then thumped it back, the ball clattering off what looks like the shins of Graeme Shinnie much to the hilarity of his team-mates.
The bear apologised and shook hands with the Aberdeen captain.
