While the footballer was stranded in the congestion on the M80 en route to training at The Falkirk Stadium this morning he improvised – by digging out his fitness gear and conducting an impromptu stretching session in the middle of the road!

With traffic at a standstill in the snow Cracks performed a few resistance band squats and leg raises to warm-up in the big chill which he posted on his Instagram page ‘crackinghealthandnutrition’.

“Stuck in a massive jam on the way to training. Rather than just sit, why not get out and get some glute work done?”.

Well done big man.
