Celtic Football Club Make An Interesting Selection...

One of the often-asked lottery related questions is "What would you do with the money?" We have run competitions in the past and rewarded our customers that have suggested outlandish and creative endeavours they'd undertake were they to rake in a massive online lottery jackpot win.

Every now and again, however, we hear of someone that has come up with something original and taken the opportunity to use their new-found wealth to do something that would have been completely impossible for them in any other circumstances.

Last week, in Glasgow, Scotland, the relatively unknown name of John Kelly ran onto the field in the final 20 minutes to face up to the formidable Manchester United Football team, who were visiting Celtic Park that weekend. He replaced someone whose name you may well be familiar with, Gerhard Butler, of Hollywood fame. Who knew he was a bit of a footballer?

Young Kelly, dragging a physique more accustomed to his day-job of apprentice car mechanic around the pitch, faced up alongside Henrick Larsson and Roy Keane in front of 55,000 Parkhead fans and actually handled himself rather well.

How did he manage this you may ask? Well, Johns' mum is Angela Kelly, the East Kilbride resident that took home a whopping €52,000,000 in 2007. John picked up the opportunity to run on for Celtic at a charity auction earlier in the year.

In a Facebook post, John said: "Thank you everyone for your kind messages. I had the best time of my life and lived the only dream I've ever known."

Despite being the heir to a massive fortune, and of course, running on the field with some of the world's top Footballers, John has remained firmly grounded, and loves his job.

Friends and co-workers marvel at the fact that he remains "Just one of the guys" and that he arrives at work on time and gets his hands dirty doing what he loves - fixing cars.

Good on you John. By keeping a level head and not changing who you are will ensure continous success in years to come. Never let money change your core values.
