Rangers midfielder Steven Davis showed his class on Twitter on Tuesday evening, by comfortably completing a skills challenge set by Academy coach, Kevin Thomson.
Social media has been awash with challenges in recent times with the public remaining at home amid the Covid-19 outbreak.
Steven Gerrard and plenty of the Rangers players had a go at the toilet roll keepy-ups challenge, with Bears raving about Joe Aribo and Ianis Hagi’s efforts in particular.
Now, former Gers midfielder Kevin Thomson is shifting things up a notch. The 35-year-old coaches the Rangers U16s and runs his own academy, and he’s challenging others to complete a different drill every day.
On Monday evening, he tweeted a video of himself completing 50 touches off a wall using alternating feet and only his laces.
Here it is then!!! Blood sweat and tears!! 🤣give it a go…..50 touches alternative feet with your LACES only!!! Let’s see if the young teds have got it in there locker 😜⚽️ @RangersFC @RFC_Youth @RangersTV @RangersWFC 🔥⚽️✅ pic.twitter.com/17Bsxzf9UP

The former Scotland international gets through the challenge but only with some difficulty, while his caption suggested it wasn’t his first attempt!
The drills are primarily aimed at youth players, but current Gers star Steven Davis decided to take this one on.
In a video posted on Tuesday evening, the Northern Ireland skipper can be seen completing the challenge with remarkable ease.

Davis looked well off the pace prior to the suspension of the Premiership, but before the winter break, he had been running matches from the centre of midfield.
He may be 35, but he’s still got plenty to offer, and he’ll be hoping to rediscover his best form when the football finally returns.
