Video: Giorgos Giakoumakis and the cutest video you’ll see today

Celtic striker Giorgos Giakoumakis has picked up another award that was presented to him by a very special person indeed.

“Celtic striker Giorgos Giakoumakis was awarded by his village’s cultural association for his sports career so far. The award was handed to him by his proud grandpa, Giorgos Giakoumakis, and this probably the cutest video you’ll see today,” Panos Kostopoulos, the Madrid based football journalist stated.

To collect such an award from his own folk back home in his home village in Greece is one thing but to receive it from his grandpa must have been extra special for the Celtic striker who made a major breakthrough as a Greece international in the recent Nations League matches.

Giorgos Giakoumakis joined Celtic from VVV Venlo on the last day of the summer transfer window but endured a frustrating period during the first half of the season through niggling injuries. A goal against St Johnstone was an early highlight in that period with a real low being a missed penalty in the last minute against Livingston that could have given Celtic the win.

Those two dropped points seemed significant at that time but when fully fit after the winter break Giakoumakis set about making up for lost time in a Celtic shirt and ended the season as joint top scorer in the Scottish Premiership, playing a huge part in helping Celtic regain the title, delivering the tenth title for Celtic in eleven years.

And Giakoumakis is set to play a huge part in the Celtic story in the new season where he’ll be fully focused on being the top scorer on his own, just like he was in his last season in Dutch football, even though VVV Venlo were relegated!
