VIDEO: Georgios Samaras Sends A Special Message To Young Celtic Fan Jay After Helping Greece Qualify

You may well remember when Neil Lennon and Georgios Samaras gave a young Celtic fan who has Down’s syndrome a day to remember after the Glasgow club lifted the SPFL Premiership trophy on May 11th this year.

Jay Beatty was given Lennon’s championship medal before former striker Samaras took him from the stands and carried him around the park to the cheers of everyone inside Celtic Park.

And now the Greek striker, who’s penalty helped send Greece into the last 16 of the World Cup, has thanked the 11-year old for giving him strength with his smile and support.

Samaras, who is currently without a club, was speaking to the media in Brazil last night when he sent the following message to his special fan.

It is sure to tug at the heartstrings of everyone involved with football once again and ‘Wee Jay’, as he is known, may well be on his way to South America after the Greek Football Federation (EPO) agreed to pay for the youngster and his family to travel to Brazil to watch Samaras and his fellow international team mates take on Costa Rica in the next round of the World Cup.
