The League Cup Champions visited Glasgow Children’s Hospital as the Celtic Foundation continued their Christmas Appeal.
The team, fresh from making it Ten Domestic Trophies in a row, were at the hospital as the club made a donation £10k as well as giving presents to some of the kids there.

While some of us will look forward to spending time with family this Christmas, the staff, families and patients will be in the GCHC in what can be a challenging time of year for them. It is vital that they are continually supported for the excellent work they do.
The Celtic captain, Scott Brown, spoke to the Celtic website of his delight to be involved in trying to bring some happiness to the children and the families over the Festive Period.
“As a team, myself and the rest of the players are delighted to once again make this special Christmas visit.
“We realise it can be a very difficult time for children and their families who are in hospital, at this time of year. We hope that in some way our visit can lift their spirits and take their minds off things.
“It is important we also thank the staff at the hospital for all they do. They make such a positive difference to the children and they deserve huge praise for the fantastic work they do throughout the year. We wish all the children at the hospital and the staff, a very Merry Christmas.”
The fabulous work of the club is especially remarkable considering the team are in the middle of a hectic period for scheduling but are still finding time to carry out duties like this that could mean the world to some of the youngsters in the GCHC.
