Jay Beatty’s Dad Tells of Celtic Fan’s Kind Charity Promise After Meeting His Son

Jay Beatty’s dad has told of one Celtic fan’s kind promise to donate his bet winnings to Downs & Proud if the Hoops managed to beat Rangers 6-0 at the weekend.

Martin, of Lurgan, shared the story on Facebook today, two days after his side were held to a 1-1 draw by rivals Rangers at Celtic Park.

He told how he arrived in Glasgow with his son Jay on Saturday night and was quickly asked for a score prediction by a fellow supporter driving by in his car.

Wee Jay apparently always predicts a 6-0 win – but the fan took his word for it, backed 6-0 at 66/1 with a bookmakers and then got in touch with Martin to say that if Celtic managed to win 6-0, the £335 winnings would go to the charity:

That’s a nice gesture from the supporter – and proving popular with supporters.

Obviously Celtic didn’t win 6-0, with Stuart Armstrong’s goal being cancelled out by Clint Hill’s late leveller for Rangers.

And no one can really argue with that scoreline as Graeme Murty’s men frustrated their opponents with a concentrated defensive performance.
