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.

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.
