2020 has been a crazy year, but hands up, who had a Celtic star making our national train operators cry on their list?
That’s exactly what Ryan Christie did last night though, as his post-match tears made a nation, and even ScotRail, weep.
The train company are usually the ones to make us cry – with their late running services, booze bans and expensive tickets.
But Hoops hero Christie returned the favour last night – as ScotRail let us all know shortly after full-time.
Ryan Christie's got us greeting here, @ScotlandNT.

Christie’s moment will go down in Scottish sporting history – alongside the likes of Andy Murray, Chris Hoy and Archie Gemmill.
The Scotland man was heroic in his country’s win in Serbia, scoring our goal on the night. Yet it really does say something that a train operator mentioned him on their social media feed.
This writer can’t have been the only one sobbing away uncontrollably as Christie also failed to control his emotions.
It simply meant so much to a country that has gone through so much despair.
Christie was the perfect guy to show his emotion
Scotland isn’t the only country to have been affected by COVID-19 this year.
But when you add in the pain the deadly virus has brought us all, to 22 years of hurt on the pitch, you’ve got a cocktail of raw emotions going around.
Christie was the perfect embodiment of all of that.
A young guy who wears his heart on his sleeve, for club and country, and gives his all whenever he plays.
Let’s just hope it’s not the last time we see happy tears from him this campaign.
Ten in-a-row would be pretty sweet too.
