Pic: A six-year old boy applied for the Celtic manager’s job; the club sent back this classy response
With Ronny Deila now at the helm, he obviously didn’t get the job, but this is a lovely touch from Celtic nonetheless.
Most kids that are crazy about football dream of becoming players rather than managers, but some have an ambition to get into management from a very early age; in the case of young Aiden Headridge from Dundee, a very early age indeed.
Headridge, six years old, from Dundee and a huge Hoops fan, sent a letter to the club applying for the manager’s job after it was vacated by Neil Lennon only to be disappointed when Norwegian Ronny Deila was given the gig instead.
We can’t imagine that many football clubs are in the business of writing rejection letters to managers who don’t get the job, but Celtic Chief Executive Peter Lawwell made an exception in Aiden’s case, replying to his application with a lovely letter explaining the decision to appoint Deila and sending on a gift to Aiden for good measure.

A classy, classy touch.
