Football strips are giving us an eyeful.

Footballers are going the Full Monty in the street after council chiefs created a hi- tech soccer centre with no changing rooms.

Angry neighbours get an eyeful as players strip to play on the floodlit pitches in Rutherglen, Glasgow.

Steve Wilson, a 40-year-old businessman, of Beechwood Avenue, said: "It is ridiculous. We are getting the Full Monty outside our homes.

"It is a crazy situation, because these pitches are probably the best in the area.

"It is wrong that the council are charging people to use them when there is nowhere to change."

Full-scale strip routines have been embarrassing locals since the pitches were opened to the public in October.

The three pitches were built 18 months ago, but had previously been reserved for schoolchildren.

A South Lanarkshire Council spokeswoman explained: "The land was a gift by a local family, and they stipulated no structure should be built on the site."

She added players would be able to use facilities at a new school nearby, once it was completed.
