Gordon Ramsay jumps on the Collingwood bandwagon after team’s thrilling AFL grand final win
Gordon Ramsay has sent a congratulatory message to Collingwood following the Magpies’ victory in the AFL grand final on Saturday.
Celebrity chef Ramsay, 56, visited the Pies earlier this year after visiting Melbourne for some filming, and watched from afar as Craig McRae’s side beat Brisbane at the MCG.
The Hell’s Kitchen star took to Twitter, now known as X, to congratulate the football club after ending their 13-year wait for the flag.
‘Well done!! I’m glad we cheered you on earlier this year!’ he posted.
In May, the Scottish native couldn’t wipe the smile off his face as he caused a storm with the team and received a signed Magpies jersey.
