Forget Billy Connolly and Rod Stewart, surely there's no more famous a Celtic fan than wee Jay Beatty.

The Lurgan lad has become a social media sensation once again. This time he gave everybody a laugh with a witty comment he made at the end of a video interview with Hamilton mascot Jack Joseph McLaughlin ahead of Saturday's game.

In less than a day, the video, published on Hamilton's twitter account, has racked up over 151k views. Wee Jay, an apparent budding reporter, quizzes Jack Joseph on his prediction for the game and his favourite player.

However, it was to that question that Jay didn't seem overly happy with the answer - instead putting forward one of Celtic's top stars as a suggestion. As onlookers laughed, Jay gave a knowing smile.

Have a look right here:

Celtic ran out 3-0 winners in Saturday's early kick-off to stay two points ahead of Rangers at the top of the table.

Wee Jay shot to stardom when Giorgios Samaras carried him around Parkhead for Celtic's lap of honour after winning the SPL title in 2014.

Since then, he's been no stranger to the headlines, such as when he won Scottish football's Goal of the Month in 2015.
