Celtic fans got a bit emotional on Twitter when the Glasgow club’s account tweeted a special message wishing former fan favourite Georgios Samaras a happy 35th birthday.

We all remember Samaras, the big Greek was an instant hit with fans and had an enormous amount of talent when he played under Gordon Strachan.

There were times big Sammy frustrated us but ultimately the Greek has and will always have a special connection with Celtic and our fans.

Hoops fans flocked to Twitter to see that Samaras is still only 35 years of age and ideally could still do a job, many fans commented at begged the club to bring him home for 10 in a row.


We all know its unlikely Samaras would come back as a player but there is still a chance one day he could return as a coach of some sort.
