A DOG with dribbling skills to match any Premiership player will make his debut at Celtic Park today - after being signed by the Record.
Kipper Mac will appear on the big screen at half-time during the Celtic v Leicester City friendly.
Owner Sean McNamara said: "Like many other little lads, I had dreams of playing at Celtic Park or at Goodison Park.
"I have three children and thought maybe they could make it, but no.
"So, now the kids tease me about me living through Kipper Mac as he's going to show off his skills to my beloved Celtic.
"I hope the crowds love him as he's a special dog."
Kipper Mac is the star of an advert to promote the Record's football fixtures guide, which is free in today's paper.
It includes details of every match in the 2016-17 season, which kicks off on Saturday, August 6. Our scouts searched worldwide for a signing and, after negotiations with his agent, Kipper Mac agreed to front our campaign - for an undisclosed fee.
Sean's family are originally from County Cork in Ireland. He moved to Cleveland, Ohia, in 1998.
Youth football coach Sean reckons Kipper Mac has what it takes to cut it in the Scottish Premiership.
He said: "Joking apart, he outruns everyone and has better dribbling skills than any player I have ever coached.
"He uses both feet and dribbles with tremendous speed.
"He is a tremendous header of the ball and can do numerous ball skills.
"He is playing at Celtic Park so what more could I possibly ask for?" When he is not teaching British literature, Sean, 63, is director of coaching at youth team, the Cleveland Cobras.
