The game benefited Oxfam’s East Africa Famine Appeal – and over 50,000 people came out for the match!

“This is a great cause and one we should all support. The charitable spirit and generosity of our supporters is well-known and we’re sure our fans will once again lend their backing to support the many thousands of people in Africa who need our help,” Celtic manager Neil Lennon said in a release.

    GREAT! He looks good and is having fun. Doing what he likes helping others in need. The press always seems to underplay that.

    He gave his respectful all. He, and everyone, should be proud. Fun times were had. He was a team-player and whether he was perfect or not, he gave his whole-hearted all. His eyes were shining, clear and very focused. He belonged. He lent his celebrity to an important cause. No one should be poking fun. Doubt anyone who did could do what he did!

    Why are people missing the point here? This was for charity. He wasn’t trying out for the team! I think Gerry’s been scratching things off of his bucket list lately so good for him, not that my comment means anything, so don’t read anything in to it.
    Nik, happy to hear things have died down over there, at least for now.

    @Latesummer’s Eve:

    I don’t think people are missing the point, yes it was for a charity game but if GB plays in a football match watched by 50000+ in a stadium and millions at home, you have to expect that his football skills are going to be judged. I don’t get why people are getting so upset by it.
    People are serious about their football here and Celtic fans are amongst the most passionate, if you have the honour of pulling on the Hoops, you have to do that shirt justice. I think that’s why he got a hard time from some fans.
    Of course people aren’t going to expect him to have the skills of the former pro’s but they will compare him to the other celebs and comment on his stamina. While he he was one of the celebs that played the longest, (he didn’t play the longest, I don’t know where that particular stat came from) there were celebs that were a lot more active than he was on the pitch.
    Having said that he leant his name to a great cause and fulfilled a boyhood dream in the process but as far as his football skills go, bless him, he should stick to acting. ;-p

    I do not remember seeing him so thin before, I hope he is well, perhaps for some character.

    I love Gerard, but something not so good happens to him, more like Hollywood sucking the life out of him.
    Gerard quit whatever bad habbit you’ve got recently. You dont look healthy.
    Take care!

    Kaiser’s take on skinny Butler:
    “Gerry looks like he would wrestle me for the last lettuce leaf. And he would lose.”
    Hey, good for him for playing in the match. He did something to help others, and had some fun. And the publicity never hurts, either. But seriously – if he keeps up with the weight loss, he’s going to look like a Body Worlds exhibit. Handing Butler my Starbucks card – lemon cake, dude. Eat some.

    I was just watching the Coriolanus trailer and everyone’s eyes look blue except Gerry’s. Either lighting in those scenes or he’s wearing contacts.

    I’m not sure why but that trailer just doesn’t stir my desire to see the movie. I’m sure I will if it’s playing near me.

    I’ll admit the shirtless photo is hard to look at. It isn’t really all that attractive, not that he’s sticking out his tongue, but the skin over muscle without any softness beneath it. Even during 300 he had some flesh… all that was FOR the part. He needs to add some weight, not much, maybe 15 pounds. Everything hangs on him now!
    who is so glad they won!
