Ex-Celtic star Mark Wilson stopped on school run after fight breaks out between two van drivers

A former Celtic star was stopped on the school run after a fight broke out between two van drivers on the road. Mark Wilson, 38, was forced to wait after the two furious men got out their vehicles started scuffling directly in front of him near Mollinsburn in North Lanarkshire on Wednesday.

The ex-Dundee United defender got out his phone and filmed the action before posting the clip to social media. In the footage, a man wearing a skipped cap can be seen approaching a van before another man, wearing a high-vis vest, bursts out of the vehicle.

The two begin squaring up to each other before a third man - who had been standing nearby - returns, smiling, to his own van. Punches then appear to be thrown between the pair as the man wearing the cap kicks out.

As they clash again, the man wearing the high-vis jacket then approaches his rival's vehicle appears to grab the other man's keys from the ignition. He tosses them away across the road and returns to his van.

As he quickly drives off, the second man proceeds to sprint towards the vehicle, pushing it as it speeds off across the pavement - before his hat falls off and he stamps the ground.

The clip has now been viewed over 175,000 times and has been liked over 2,500 times.
