BANGKOK, 23 April 2012 – Glasgow Celtic soccer players, who won the 2011-2012 Scottish Premier League, were seen during their match against Motherwell on Sunday wearing team shirts with their names printed in Thai.
Motherwell lost a home match at Fir Park Stadium to Glasgow Celtic on Sunday with the score of 0-3. But most importantly, the winning team sported soccer shirts with their names spelt in Thai in their support for Thai children with Down’s syndrome, who were also present at the game.
Celtic FC had successfully raised enough funds earlier this year to enable the children from the Good Child Foundation, or Thai Tims, which is located in Thailand’s eastern province of Chanthaburi, to visit Scotland for the soccer match.
The children have also been invited to appear and perform at a concert at the Royal Concert Hall in Glasgow on May 10 as part of Celtic’s celebration of its victory. The report also stated that the children will also get to see another soccer match between Celtic and St. Johnstone up close on May 3.
