Rio looks ahead to facing McStay’s Maestros at Celtic Park in the upcoming charity match.


404 Not Found Q. We are looking forward to a very big game at Celtic Park, Paul McStay’s Maestrio against Rio’s All Star, can you tell us about the game and how it came together?

A. I’ve seen Stiliyan Petrov game before and impressed by it and it was of course and Celtic taking part in that and they are a great club just showing their class with such an event and My foundation was doing bits and pieces in different parts of England, Scotland, Ireland and further afield.Celtic launch

One of the guys that helps me run it, Gary, he was closely affiliated with a few of the guys at Celtic. So we started talking and an idea came about that I could bring and XI and Celtic bringing one.

I said I’d like to do it, but there was a stipulation that Paul McStay had to be involved and that was the line for me and my foundation to be a part of it, the game will be aligned to my charity and to the Celtic FC Foundation as well, which is a good marriage really.

Q. Do you have a message for people who are maybe considering coming along to the game?

A. Don’t just consider it – come along and help good cause generally good people trying to help others. Your money on the night will be going to the causes and we will hopefully put on a good show for you!
