Celtic-mad groom makes speech to ‘love of life’ before raising glass to Big Ange

A football-mad groom made a heartfelt wedding speech to the "love of his life" – but it wasn't his wife he was paying tribute to.

James Beattie, 31, of Glasgow tied the knot with partner Rachael, 28, at Dalduff Farm in Maybole, South Ayrshire on Saturday, June 4.

After the ceremony, family and friends gathered in the stunning, rustic seating area of the venue to enjoy a sit-down meal and toast the happy couple, Daily Record reports.

But James provided the entertainment as he embarked on a gushing, romantic speech about Celtic manager Ange Postecoglou.

In footage of the address, which was shared on social media, James says: "To the person who makes me happy every time I see their face, the person who reminds me to appreciate the little things in life, who's made me believe that anything's possible.

"You have truly turned my life around in such a short space of time and I love you for it."

Turning to his guests, James continues: "I would highly recommend you all find someone that makes you feel the way that I do, so I would very much appreciate it if you could all raise a glass… to big Ange Postecoglou".

James' hilarious quip makes the party erupt with laughter, and as the newlywed breaks into a wide grin, he finishes his toast with a mischievous, "to Ange!" before lifting his beer into the air, leaving the crowd in stitches.

The man's new wife appears to take the joke well, joining in on the applause and smiling in both amusement and disbelief, while James adds: "Sorry, sorry, I wasn't sure how that would go down but yeah, I'm happy with that!"

Other members of the top table also seem to take the comments in good spirits as the room regains composure, the footy fan concludes by saying: "Seriously, though, the most important toast of the day has to go to the new Mrs Beattie."

Guests raise their glass one last time to the loved-up pair, while some chuckling can still be heard in the background.

Celtic ousted rivals Rangers to become champions of Scotland after winning the Scottish Premiership title last month – a feat led by Postecoglou, who became manager of the club in the summer of 2021.
