VIDEO: Charlie Adam produces one of the worst dives in football history

Charlie Adam produces one of the worst dives in football history with footage from his latest match going viral on social media.

It came during Saturday afternoon’s bottom-of-the-SPL clash between Dundee and St Johnstone, but the 1-1 and draw will be mostly remembered for a pathetic dive you’ll ever see from a professional footballer.

36 year old Adam, a former Liverpool and Rangers player turned Dundee captain was hoping to win his side a free-kick here, but instead, was issued with a yellow card.

Not only is it a poor attempt, but Adam makes himself look even more a prat considering just three weeks ago, he was having a swipe at Aberdeen’s Lewis Ferguson for going down too easy.

After the 2-2 draw between the sides, Adam said of Ferguson on Sportscene: “He’s one of these players that goes down far too easy. You’re in a man’s game. It’s physical contact, it’s a man’s sport.”

“Maybe a little bit of experience today has shown him a wee bit of savvy. Sometimes you don’t get everything if you cry for it.”

That day, Adam also made contact with that Ferguson’s face twice in the build-up to Dundee’s first goal with Aberdeen manager Jim Goodwin talking about that incident in his post-match interview after that game.

“I can’t not mention the build up to the first goal, because Charlie Adam has clearly struck Lewis Ferguson twice in the face which should have been a foul for us…I’m not saying it should have been a red card, but it certainly should have been a free-kick for Lewis Ferguson.”
