MARTIN Compston has mocked a Unionist troll who labelled him a "dirty separatist Jacobite" as he celebrated a Soccer Aid victory over England.

The Scots actor set up the second goal as the Rest of the World XI won 3-0 in the charity football game.

He also led teammate Usain Bolt in chants of "no Scotland no party" before the game. 

During the match, the Line of Duty star was targeted by a Unionist troll.

The online abuser, whose account was named “King Billy”, said they hoped former Manchester United and England star Paul Scholes crocked Compston.

"I'm hoping Scholesy sticks one on [Compston] the dirty separatist Jacobite! Usually I wouldn't care who wins as it's for a great cause @UNICEF but as Compost is playing then, Come on England,” the troll wrote.

After the game, the Greenock-born actor replied: "How’s your night going billy lad?"

The abusive comment was subsequently deleted.

Compston, who played for his local team Greenock as a youngster, won praise for his handling of the abuse and his performance in the charity match.

The Scot provided a 75th minute assist for ex-Love Island contestant Kim Cetinay to score their side's second goal.

One Twitter user replied: “As a Rangers fan, who wants independence, I was supporting you. Incredibly I can see beyond a team!! Martin, you did a great job tonight for a great cause. Ignore the indefensible.”

Another added: “I don’t get this mentality at all. I’m Rangers and couldn’t care less who you support, it’s secondary to your acting skills and how you portray yourself in the public eye which, is top notch by the way. Well done tonight fella.”

Compston joined the likes of Usain Bolt and Darren Fletcher on the Rest of the World XI.

Before the game, Bolt joined Compston in a chant of “No Scotland no party” on the team bus.

Following the match, it was announced the event had raised a record £13,014,769, the most in the 10-year history of Soccer Aid. 

England were managed by former national team boss Sven-Goran Eriksson and captained by Wayne Rooney, with Harry Redknapp helping take charge of the World XI.

Judy Murray and Robbie Keane were also among the coaching staff on the World XI side.
