Five-Year-Old Celtic Fan Phoned The Club To Apologise For Missing A Game

Five-Year-Old Celtic Fan Phoned The Club To Apologise For Missing A Game

A young Celtic fan rang up his beloved club to apologise for missing a game.

Hoops-mad Louis Kayes, aged five, was so plagued with guilt after missing Saturday’s 2-0 win over Motherwell at Parkhead that he had to phone and apologies.

The youngster, from Moodiesburn, North Lanarkshire, was forced to give up his ticket for the Scottish Premiership match because it clashed with a friend’s birthday party, the BBC reports.

And Louis’ mum revealed how he borrowed her mobile phone to call Celtic Park to give them the terrible news.

Speaking BBC Radio Scotland’s Kaye Adams programme, mum Lisa Kayes, 35, said: “He was in the living room with my phone and then I heard the voicemail message from Celtic Park saying ‘thank you for calling’.”

Lisa said Louis wanted to speak to the club’s manager, Brendan Rodgers, and his favourite player, Celtic captain Scott Brown, to apologise and explain his absence.

She said: “He wanted to let both of them know he’d missed it in case they were looking for him.”

The young Hoops supporter has since turned his attention to Wednesday’s Champions League clash with Borussia Monchengladbach – which he definitely won’t be missing.

And he’s predicted a 3-1 victory for his club, but confessed to feeling some pre-match nerves.

His mum added: “He’s possibly the most passionate five-year-old I know in terms of supporting Celtic. He doesn’t like to miss a game.

“I think Celtic-Motherwell is the last home game he’ll miss in a while. I don’t think we’ll be getting him to many other things on a Saturday afternoon.”
