GARY PLAYER

Nine-time major winner Gary Player visited Celtic Park yesterday to help promote the upcoming Open Championship at Royal Troon.


And in doing so, he gave a golfing masterclass to Hoops duo Craig Gordon and Stuart Armstrong, as well as Celtic legend Tom Boyd.

“Celtic being associated with the R&A means that I am here and it's been terrific. To meet Bertie Auld, who is almost my age, and to see him in good shape was fantastic and meeting the young guys was a thrill as well.”

Here are a few photos from Player’s day at Celtic Park.
