Video: CCTV footage of Blackburn striker David Goodwillie brawling in the street
Footage of Blackburn’s David Goodwillie fighting in the street has appeared on YouTube.
The Scotland international pleaded guilty to assault on Monday and is due to be sentenced next month. He has been told to expect community service for lamping 23-year-old John Friel during a night out in Glasgow in 2010.
The CCTV footage shows he did so with considerable justification.
Friel had earlier knocked Goodwillie’s then Dundee United team-mate Danny Swanson out cold with a blindside punch that came from nowhere. The striker initially tended to his horizontal mate. But eventually he decided enough was enough and gave Friel a smack.
Friel was given 240 hours’ community service.
