Dundee United goal hero Lawrence Shankland has shown off his impressive keepie-uppie skills as part of a fundraising drive.
The striker displayed his ball control as he took part in the challenge using only his knees in a video posted to social media.
Shankland, who scored 28 goals during United’s Championship-winning 2019-20 season, was nominated for the challenge by Livingston midfielder Robbie Crawford.

He managed to keep the ball in action for more than a minute.
The challenge is raising money for the Glasgow Children’s Hospital via the Scott Laughlan Together Fund.
Laughlan passed away in 2016, aged just 23, as a result of cystic fibrosis.
