The La Liga club heard about this, and in incredible scenes, allowed Gohan to start their friendly against Celtic.

The 13-year-old was given his own place in the dressing room, a squad number and even got a talking to from the manager before kicking the game off. He later went on to score a goal for them before being taken off to an amazing applause, the report added.
