Colin Kazim-Richards has yet to set Scotland alight since moving to Celtic in January. However, during the Hoops’ hard-fought 1-0 win away to Kilmarnock on Saturday, the striker endeared himself to the travelling support by rescuing a fan from an officious steward.
The incident happened after Celtic scored the only goal of the game, courtesy of sub Tom Rogic, a strike which sent the Bhoys’ fans wild, with some of them spilling onto the pitch to celebrate with the players. Not surprisingly, the Kilmarnock stewards were quick to intervene.
However, seeing one fans getting frogmarched off the pitch, Kazim-Richards stepped in to save the celebrating supporter. The incident occurs at about 18 seconds…

While the stewards were obviously only doing their jobs, it’s nice to see a player concerned with the welfare of his fans. Now all Kazim-Richards need to do is start knocking in the goals and he’ll be loved forever in Glasgow.
