Scottish Championship Footballer Has Bounty Bar Thrown At Him, Reacts Perfectly

The traditional Christmas derby season in Scotland was a bit of a let down for the most part. Hearts and Hibs played out a drab 0-0 last Wednesday, and Celtic and Rangers followed suit on Saturday. But they weren't the only Scottish derbies played over the last week.

The Renfrewshire Derby, the Clasico of the central Lowlands of Scotland, is a fixture that goes back to 1882. Greenock Morton and St. Mirren renewed rivalries yesterday afternoon, playing out a 1-1 draw at Cappielow.

With the away team 1-o up, full-back Stelios Demetriou went to take a throw-in in front of the hostile home fans and was struck on the back by a Bounty bar.

Not a bother to Stelios, who picked up the chocolate, unwrapped it, and took a bite before getting on with the game. Brilliant.

The Bounty was an interesting choice of sweet for the Morton fan to choose. Interestingly, it was a full bar, and not a leftover sweet from the Christmas box of Celebrations. Given the bounty of Bounty sweets available at this time of year, however, we sincerely doubt the Bounty was a purchase from the stadium shop. An unwanted addition to the Mars Selection Box surely, the Morton fan in question didn't want any of his Christmas presents to go to waste.
Unfortunately, given what happened, Morton went on to equalise. We eagerly await to next renewal of the Renfrewshire Derby in April.
