Lawrence Shankland has responded to Rangers fans who teased him over Wednesday's embarrassing encounter with Ovie Ejaria at Ibrox.

Footage of Shankland - the Rangers-supporting Ayr United striker lighting up Scotland's second tier this season - struggling to get a hold of Ejaria has been widely circulated on Twitter.

 

And after being asked by one Gers supporter if he thought he was going to get the ball ("you wee f****** idiot?"), Shankland replied in good humour.

"Canny mind I'm still dizzy", wrote the Glaswegian.

Shankland - who has scored 13 goals in his last 11 outings - has been linked with a number of clubs north and south of the border in recent months.

And speaking to BT Sport on Wednesday, Michael Stewart, the former Rangers youth team player, claimed the 23-year-old could play for a "(Scottish) top six club".
