Celtic manager Brendan Rodgers rushes on pitch and SHOVES steward to ‘rescue’ young fan

FANS have hailed Celtic boss Brendan Rodgers for racing on to shove a steward away and “rescue” a young pitch invader.

Rodgers fended security staff off the grounded kid and led him off the field during Saturday’s 3-0 Scottish Premiership win at Livingston.

Celtic supporters applauded as Rodgers steered the boy off the pitchRex

The ex-Liverpool manager put a protective arm around the supporter as he calmly guided him off behind the goal to applause from Celtic fans.

Observers responded online with “Good on him” and “What a man” after seeing the way Rodgers intervened.

A third claimed: “That’s Brenders won the Green Brigade back over!”

But some viewers believe the ex-Leicester chief should NOT have intervened.

One warned: “This will only start the trend again of kids thinking this is ok.”

Another argued: “Maybe he should just let the guy do his job / shouldn’t be on the pitch!”

And this was a similar opinion: “With the greatest of respect, the boy shouldn’t have been on the pitch at all, and whoever he’s with is an irresponsible clown.”

The drama came as Celtic survived a red card for keeper Joe Hart to move two points clear at the top.

Rodgers praised the champions’ “monumental effort”.

Hatate’s early penalty opener was followed by hart’s dismissal for a professional foul.

Matt O’Riley tapped Celtic’s second goal on 28 minutes before Daizen Maeda notched a brilliant third deep in stoppage time.

Rodgers said: “It was an outstanding win for us. Huge credit to the players. It’s a monumental effort on the back end of a Champions League week.”
