FORMER Celtic player Thomas Gravesen has made a touching donation following his recent appearance on Open Goal.

The Dane has donated his fee he received from their show at the Hydro to the Celtic FC Foundation.

The retired ex-Hoops midfielder was a special guest at last night's sell-out Open Goal Live event.

However, rather than accept an appearance fee, Gravesen very generously opted to donate it to the Foundation's ongoing Football for Good Fund (FFGF).

The Dane appeared alongside a host of celebrity stars at the event which was hosted by Open Goal presenter and former Celt, Si Ferry, and was delighted to make an impact on our charitable work.

Gravesen said: “It was great to be back in Glasgow – the two years I had here bring back many special memories for me.

"I’m very aware of the work that Celtic FC Foundation are doing in the city and in various other places, and I’m delighted that I can help them in this way."

Tony Hamilton, Chief Executive of Celtic FC Foundation, added: “We are very grateful to Thomas Gravesen and Open Goal for thinking of us.

"Thomas was brilliant at the Open Goal event, and this kindness in not taking his appearance fee means that we can do more for those in our communities who are struggling at the moment.”
