Ball smashes in face of assistant referee. Luckily it has never happend to me. Hibernian captain Liam Craig wants to clear the ball away from his defence and tries to shoot the ball over the line. It did, and the ball unwittingly hit the assistant referee very hard on his head.
As noted as comment on the YouTube video: “The official looked dazed for several seconds but took it on the chin and bravely shrugged it off. Respect!”
Watch the clip from St Mirren – Hibernian in the SPFL Scottish Premiership on 23th of November 2013.
