CELTIC fan Michael Jamieson is to get a heroes' welcome at Parkhead.
The Glasgow giants have invited the 23-year-old Olympic silver medal swimmer to Celtic Park to help him celebrate his success.
Jamieson, from Robroyston, is expected to be in the East End on Saturday when Celtic are presented with League Champions flag ahead of their opening game against Aberdeen.
Last night Celtic fans at the European qualifier against HJK Helsinki were able to watch him race live on the big screens inside the club's East End stadium.
And Jamieson, who missed gold by just 0.15 seconds in the 200m breaststroke, was congratulated on Twitter last night by the club.
A spokesman for Celtic said: "We look forward to welcoming him to Celtic Park."
Jamieson, who trained at the Glasgow School Of Sport at Bellahouston Academy from the age of 11 to 18, was narrowly beaten to the gold by Hungarian Danil Gyurta, who set a new world record.
The Bath University Scot set a British record time of 2.07.43.
Jamieson said: "I planned for this night and I think that helped with the nerves. For so many years I prepared for this in my head. I'm delighted. I just can't believe it."
As previously reported in the Evening Times, Jamieson is the first Olympian to have attended the Glasgow school dedicated to sporting excellence.
School director Angie Porter told the Evening Times this week Michael has "an amazing work ethic". The swimmer now hopes to go for gold at home in the Commonwealth Games, having won silver in Delhi.
He started swimming at Tollcross pool – where the swimming events for Glasgow 2014 will be held – a link Jamieson said was "a fairy tale".
Earlier, another Scots star won Britain's first gold of the games in the rowing.
Rower Heather Stanning and partner Helen Glover powered to first place in the women's pairs rowing.
Lossiemouth's Stanning, 27, and Glover romped home at Eton Dorney to win Britain's first-ever Olympic gold in women's rowing. They won by a length and half from Australia, with New Zealand third.
Glover and Stanning opened their campaign by winning their heat in an Olympic best time.
Stanning grew up in Scotland and is a captain in the Royal Artillery. She is now set to go to Afghanistan.
Scottish Rowing president Mike Morrice said: "There has been a lot of pressure from the media looking for a Team GB gold medal, so we are all very proud that a Scottish rower has been able to get the team off and running."
Just a few hours later the celebrations moved up a notch as Bradley Wiggins become the first man to win the Tour de France and Olympic gold in the same year after claiming victory in the men's road cycling time trial.
The sporting sensation was greeted by a deafening crowd at Hampton Court Palace as he claimed gold after completing the 44-kilometre course.
Wiggins, 32, who planned to celebrate with a few vodka-tonics, said: "It's been an amazing six weeks.
"I realised on the podium, I don't think anything's going to top that – winning the Tour and then winning Olympic gold in London.
"There was only one colour today."
Wiggins took the opportunity before the medal presentation to see his wife, Cath, and children, Ben and Isabella, and to acclaim the crowd by riding down the road back along the route.
He added: "I wanted to go and see my wife and all the people that had come to stand there on the roadside. We all know about the Olympic ticketing.
"The great thing about cycling is it's free to come and watch."
Thousands of cycling fans waving British flags lined the route, with some holding banners renaming the day Wiggo Wednesday.
It was a double success for Great Britain as Chris Froome won the bronze medal.
Wiggins is to be offered the Freedom of the Borough of Chorley on his return to his home village, council bosses said.
The Londoner moved to Eccleston, Lancashire, to be closer to the Manchester Velodrome.
