A James Bond star has unveiled himself as being an unlikely Celtic fan.

English actor Rory Kinnear - known for portraying Bill Tanner in the Bond films Quantum of Solace, Skyfall, and Spectre - highlighted his ambitions for his children in an interview with a national newspaper.

In a Q&A session with The Guardian at the weekend, the 39-year-old was asked: “How would you like to be remembered?”

The father-of two replied: “As the father of Celtic’s all-time top goalscorer (that’s either of my kids).”

Kinnear is engaged to actress Pandora Colin, 45, known for her roles in Run, Fatboy, Run and The Lady in the Van.

He is also the son of EastEnders actress Carmel Cryan, 68, and the late Roy Kinnear who died in 1988 at the age of 54 after he fell off a horse on the set of The Return of the Musketeers.
