Gordon Ramsay has sent a congratulatory message to Collingwood following the Magpies’ AFL grand final victory on Saturday.
Celebrity chef Ramsay, 56, visited the Pies earlier this year after traveling to Melbourne for filming, and watched from afar as Craig McRae’s side defeated Brisbane at the MCG.
The Hell’s Kitchen star took to Twitter, now known as X, to congratulate the footy club after ending a 13-year wait for the flag.
‘Good game!! Glad to have encouraged you earlier this year! » he posted.
Last May, the Scottish native couldn’t wipe the smile off his face as he posed up a storm with the team and received a signed Magpies jersey.
