BRENDAN RODGERS has put the fans at the forefront of his thinking since he got to Celtic last year. Always making sure the players acknowledge the fans and in doing so has cultivated an atmosphere where the fans and the team feel closer than ever.

The Irishman has shown sheer class in everything that he’s done, that’s why it’s no surprise he made one young fans day on Sunday extra special.

The wee man has followed Celtic home and away this season. He’s been to Motherwell, St Johnstone and Hearts away which were all massive games throughout the season. He absolutely loves Celtic and the gesture from Brendan is just amazing.

It certainly a season the young man will never forget and his Dad tells us Aiden is in the process of writing his new pal Brendan a thank you letter. This is what football is all about, inspiring a young generation to follow the hoops by setting a great example. We hope Aiden cherishes his medal for a long time!
