LAST CHRISTMAS, WE spoke to Martin Beatty whose 11-year old son Jay became something of a star when he formed a bond with Celtic striker Georgios Samaras.

Jay, who has Down Syndrome, became an internet sensation after the Greek striker picked him out of the crowd during Celtic’s title celebrations in May before inviting him to the World Cup in Brazil.

On Sunday, Hamilton Academical invited Jay over to their game with Celtic and gave the youngster a chance to score in front of the away fans at half time.

Their reaction is brilliant:
