SCOTT MCTOMINAY has been brutally trolled by fans after they spotted the Manchester United star using his hand to perform a skill.
The Red Devils midfielder was performing the "around the world" trick but required some help from an unexpected source to get the job done.
The skill sees footballers knock the ball in mid-air, twist their foot around the ball and then collect in on their laces before it hits the ground.
McTominay made a good fist of it – but only thanks to his hand.
The viral video of what appears to be an in-house media photoshoot sees the Scottish international doing kick-ups.
He then tries to pull off the around the world skill, but left fans in hysterics with a sneaky use of his hand.

One fan on Twitter joked he had now joined Diego Maradona in the "Hand of God heritage".
Another tweeted: "This is the real reason why McTominay is injured, he probably tried this without using his hand."
One United fan wrote: "McTominay fully used his hand to complete an around the world and you want me to be content with him in my starting 11 loool."
The video aside, McTominay has impressed fans with his pre-season performances so far.

The 25-year-old's long-range effort took a wicked deflection which lifted it beyond the keeper and into the net for the equaliser.
After some criticism in recent seasons, the United academy product is looking to converts critics, including the likes of Roy Keane.
McTominay said earlier in pre-season: "You’re playing for Man United, you’re going to get criticised.
“If you think you’re going to come and play for Man United and you’re not going to get a little bit criticism here and there, then you're in the wrong job because that's just not how it works at this football club.
“Maybe you need to have a little look in the mirror because that's just part and parcel of the game.
“Everyone gets criticised, that's the world we live in, social media criticism.
“You only see it how much you want see it. That's part and parcel of it as well.”
