Video: Celtic shot stopper Craig Gordon enjoys a kick about with young fans

Footballers can be genuinely good guys... who knew!

You know how most footballers have a bit of a reputation for caring more about themselves or their bank balances rather than the fans who turn up (and effectively pay their wages) every week?

Well, we reckon we've found one of football's good guys in the form of Celtic and Scotland shot stopper Craig Gordon, who seems like a top bloke.

Why? Well, after Celtic's 0-0 draw with Gordon's former side Hearts, the 32-year-old decided to stay behind and join a group of young fans for a kick about outside Celtic Park.

And, despite being Celtic's number one, Gordon managed (or was nice enough) to let a few goals in, with the giant keeper somehow getting nutmegged by one cheeky youngster.

After the kick about was over, Gordon was even nice enough to stay back and get some pictures with the lucky young fans and earn his way onto our nice guy lift.

All this despite the disappointment of a 0-0 draw for Celtic against Hearts - which would no doubt have left most of the Bhoys squad too disappointed to stick around.

Well played Craig, as PR goes, you're doing quite nicely!
