Skill of the Week: Mehdi Taouil (Kilmarnock)

Yesterday we brought you footage from last week’s fourth round Scottish Cup tie between SPL side Kilmarnock and first division side Ayr to highlight why Bryan Prunty is a dirty cheat.

Happily, we can return to that match today to bring you this week’s skill of the week from Killie’s little known Moroccan playmaker, Mehdi Taouil.

After having had spells with Nancy and Montpellier in France and Nuremberg in Germany, Taouil Joined Killie back in October 2007. And since arriving north of the boarder, he has become reknowned for his fancy flicks and neat tricks, although frustratingly this often comes at the expense of the end product.

Against lower league Ayr, Taouil was clearly up for the challenge and keen to show off his full range of tricks.

Without giving too much away, highlights of the Taouil’s showboats can be seen here.
