Celtic-mad Commonwealth boxer Lomalito Moalo couldn’t wait to get to Glasgow this week to compete.

The lightweight Tonga athlete, who comes from Sydney, made an immediate trip to the Celtic superstore to purchase some club merchandise after his arrival.

But that wasn’t enough for the Hoops fanatic Lomalito.

He wanted to see the real thing for himself.

He Tweeted:

And after his series of Tweets and Instagram videos, he got his way – thanks to a little help from the bosses at Celtic.

The Scottish Champions were playing the second leg of their Champions League qualifier against KR Reykjavik at Murrayfield, Edinburgh, tonight.

And when they heard that the 22-year-old boxer was desperate for match tickets, they were more than happy to assist.

He expressed his delight on social media after being gifted six tickets for the Murrayfield fixture by the Parkhead chiefs.

He added:

However that was just the beginning for Lomalito.

After making his way to the capital for the match he met Celtic captain Scott Brown.

Ronny Deila’s side ran out 4-0 winners on the night, 5-0 on aggregate against the Icelandic side.

A great sporting gesture from Celtic, whose stadium will play host to the Glasgow 2014 opening ceremony tomorrow night.
