Andy Murray takes on crossbar challenge against Celtic players

British tennis star Andy Murray joins his Davis Cup teammates in a crossbar challenge against Celtic's footballers in Glasgow.

Two-time Grand Slam tennis champion Andy Murray switched sports for an afternoon to take on a crossbar challenge against Celtic's footballers.

The Scotsman and his Davis Cup teammates are currently in Glasgow preparing for this weekend's semi-finals against Australia.

After walking from the Emirates Arena to Celtic Park, Murray, James Ward, Kyle Edmund, Jamie Murray, Dom Inglot and captain Leon Smith took to the pitch to try to strike the ball on the bar from just outside of the penalty area.

"We're walking distance from the Emirates where we're playing, so it was brilliant and the guys had a great time," Smith told PA.

"I was the worst, there's no doubt about that - I completely shanked my first shot. I would say Andy Murray is the best [football] player. When we play five-a-sides he shines out, but I'm going to say that aren't I?"

A number of Celtic players got involved, as did manager Ronny Deila and coach John Kennedy, who won the challenge in his second attempt.
