Watch: Stephen Hunt Loses The Plot For Ireland In Star Sixes Game

Watch: Stephen Hunt Loses The Plot For Ireland In Star Sixes Game
By Gary Connaughton Updated

He definitely hasn't lost his competitive spirit. Stephen Hunt pulled on a green jersey once again this evening, as an Ireland team took part in the Star Sixes tournament in Glasgow. The event features teams from all the home nations, as well as a rest of world outfit, sporting a number of past internationals.

The Ireland team was made up by the likes of Jason McAteer, Niall Quinn, and Ian Harte, but it was Stephen Hunt that stole the show. Ireland's opening game of the evening would be against the Scots, who had home advantage on their side.

Hunt, presumably acknowledging that fact, decided to get stuck into the opposition. With the game deadlocked at 0-0 eight minutes into the contest, former Rangers man Barry Ferguson put in a questionable tackle on the former Reading winger. He was not one bit happy about the challenge, and made his feelings known to his opponent.

Hunt was not going to take this challenge lying down. With the ball there to be won in a 50/50 with Mark Burchill later in the game, he was going for it. Man, ball, he was taking something. He took the man, and got the line. A straight red card in a legend's game.

This was a proper two foot tackle as well, none of that soft stuff you see in the modern game.

Talk about taking no prisoners. My favourite part of the incident is that Hunt gestured that the Scot dived. Down their talismanic winger, Ireland fall to a 2-0 defeat.

Next up for the Irish was Wales, who featured the somewhat youthful and unfairly fit Craig Bellamy.  Stephen Hunt somehow avoided suspension too, and we weren't to be bested twice on the bounce. Despite this absolutely comical own goal form Phil Babb, Ireland would go on to claim a massive 4-3 victory.
