Lawro's Premier League predictions v James McAvoy

McAvoy is a Celtic fan and says he grew up supporting them for many reasons.

"I think your choice of football club quite often is not your choice," he told BBC Sport. "It is thrust upon you by your family, wherever you grew up, or sometimes even your religion, so it is a kind of environmental thing that you just soak up.

"That is why I am a Celtic fan but why I enjoy being a Celtic fan is different and I have much more power over that.

"In London, I keep an eye on Arsenal but I am not really an Arsenal fan. I am more of a plastic Gooner just because I used to live two doors away from the East Stand when they played at Highbury.

"That was amazing. When I couldn't get tickets, which was quite often, I would be able to watch the game on TV, open the windows and turn the sound down, and just have the roar of the crowd in the background."
