The Scottish actor and D.I Steve Arnott in the Line of Duty, Martin Compston, showed he can still play football after leaving Morton in 2002 in favour of becoming an actor.
Compston was hailed on social media as he pulled the strings for the Rest of the World side last night, winning special praise for wearing the number 67 in honour of the Lisbon Lions. Andy Robertson also hailed Compston for his strong tackles.
