CASTLEMILK singer Gerry Cinnamon has received a signed shirt from an ex-Celtic star.

The popular folk singer boasted on the social media website Instagram that he had received a "wee surprise" from ex-Hoops wonderkid Tony Watt.

He said: "Been in London for the last week eating burgers and meeting folk in fancy buildings.

"Come home to this wee surprise from Tony Watt, class. Cheers my man."

Evening Times:

Coatbridge-born Watt first rose to fame after scoring for Celtic during his Champions League debut against Barcelona in 2012.

Now 23, he was just a teenager when he scored in the 88th minute in the 2-1 home game against Barcelona.

After leaving Celtic, the former St Andrew’s High School pupil had spells at clubs including Charlton Athletic and Hearts before settling in Belgium.

He had a loan spell at Blackburn Rovers which is the shirt he gifted to Cinnamon.

The shirt reads: "To Gerry, all the best."

He also performed at Glasgow's first-ever TRNSMT Festival last year and will return to perform alongside headliner Liam Gallagher on June 30.
