Ross McCormack played a key role as Usain Bolt stole the show on his friendly debut for Australian club Central Coast Mariners.
The former Rangers forward scored one and set up another. He set up one of the World’s Fastest Man two goals in the 4-0 win against Macarthur South West.
Bolt remains unsigned by the A-League side but joined them in August for an “indefinite training period”.
And in case you were wondering, the big Jamaican celebrated with his trademark lightning bolt pose.
McCormack only has good things to say about Usain Bolt
McCormack praised Bolt, 32, for his humility since joined the Aussie club.
“The best thing about Usain Bolt is he’s so humble,” McCormack said.
“He’s fitted in well with the lads. From my first day even to where he is now, the transformation is huge.”
At 32, it’s unlikely Usain Bolt is ever really going to set the heather alight in a top, top league, but he has described playing professional football as a “dream”.
After scoring today he said:
“My first start and scoring two goals, it’s a good feeling,” Bolt, 32, said.
“I’m happy I could come here and show the world I’m improving. I’m keen to be a Mariner, to play my best and get into the team.”
It wasn’t so long ago we were talking about Ross McCormack coming back to the club. It’s very unlikely we’ll ever see him at Ibrox again.
But would you take Usain Bolt?
