Gerard Butler - Gerard Butler's Soccer Success At Charity Match
Actor Gerard Butler jetted back to his native Scotland on Tuesday (09Jul11) to play a charity soccer match to raise funds for victims of the East African drought.
The 300 hunk joined the Celtics team, which included legendary players Henrik Larsson, Neil Lennon and John Hartson, for the game against the retired Manchester United squad, whose all-star additions were comic Patrick Kielty and boxer Nigel Benn.
The two teams battled it out in front of 50,000 fans at Celtic Park in Glasgow - where Butler grew up - and the star helped his side win with a final score of 5-2.
The money raised from ticket sales will go to Oxfam's East Africa crisis appeal, benefiting the millions of people left without food after the continent was hit by one of the worst droughts in its history.
