Celtic manager Brendan Rodgers won the hearts of many as he displayed a heartwarming act of kindness after today’s game, rescuing a young fan from stewards’ intervention.
Following Celtic’s 3-0 victory against Livingston, a young Celtic fan ran onto the pitch.
In a viral video, stewards can be seen tackling the young child to do the ground before proceeding to grab him roughly before proceeding to escort him away.
A furious Brendan Rodgers can be seen stepping in. He pushed the steward aside, before putting his arm around the young fan, and walked with him towards the stands.
Rodgers later addressed the incident during a post-match interview with Sky Sports. He criticized the stewards’ behavior toward the young supporter, emphasising the importance of common sense in such situations.
