Heartwarming! Footballer does a Simple Thing That Means the World to this kid with Down’s Syndrome

There was a classy, heartwarming moment at Celtic Park recently. 

Celtic capped a title-winning campaign with a 3-1 victory over Dundee United. After receiving their winners’ medals and all the normal celebrations, manager Neil Lennon ran to the stands and gave away his medal to Jay Beatty, an 11-year-old Celtic fan who has Down’s syndrome. 

Greek striker Georgios Samaras then ran over and picked up Beatty and carried the smiling boy around the pitch to take in applause of the 52,400 in attendance.
