Motherwell defender Charles Dunne put an unscheduled day off to good use by giving lifts to random pedestrians who were out and about in heavy snow.

Dunne posted a video on his Instagram account which shows him picking up three people in his 4×4 vehicle and dropping them off at their homes.

The 25-year-old had been due to face Aberdeen in the Scottish Premiership on Wednesday night but the match was called off after a red weather warning was issued advising people not to travel.

The former Blackpool player tells one of the people he helps out in his selfless act: “I can’t be having Ronan walking in the streets in this weather. I got you, I got you mate.”

Dunne drops another man off and remarks “safe and sound” as he is greeted at his front door, before picking up someone else who was using a walking stick in several inches of snow.

The neighbourly gestures drew praise form Motherwell chief operating officer Alan Burrows, who branded the player a “Lanarkshire super hero”.

But Dunne shrugged off the acclaim, saying on Twitter: “Cumon Thats Standard Cant See People Struggle In This Weather And Drive Past Them! Just Put Yourself In There Shoes!”
