It would be safe to say that Celtic have their fair share of famous fans. Rod Stewart is the first name that comes to most people’s minds, one of the best-selling music artists in history. Lewis Capaldi is another popular musician known to support the Hoops. And several A-list celebrities like Gerard Butler, Snoop Dogg, Macklemore, Conor McGregor and more have been pictured wearing the club’s jersey over the years.
It is time to add another name to that list. It is that of none other than one of the most successful actors of all time in Pierce Brosnan.
Brosnan has been an actor for more than forty years now and he is best known for his portrayal of James Bond in the 1990s and early 2000s. He starred in four 007 movies and several video games as well.
Scottish actor, Gianni Capaldi, posted a few pictures on Twitter of Brosnan recently wearing the Celtic jersey from this season. He even has ‘Brosnan 007’ printed on the back. The photos appear to be from the set of one of their upcoming films.

It goes without saying that Brosnan is one of the most recognisable names in Hollywood. Of course, he is best known for playing James Bond and all of those movies were very successful.
Interestingly, Brosnan’s most successful movie is not any of the four James Bond films that he made. Instead, it is Mamma Mia, a film from 2008 which also features Meryl Streep and Colin Firth.
It is good to see someone like Brosnan show his support for the Hoops. The majority of football fans do not realise how big of a global brand Celtic truly are simply because of the fact that the Scottish Premiership is not counted amongst the most popular in the world.
