Football fans raced 25 miles to give Marie Osmond her “forgotten pies”


A FOOTBALL fan chased Marie Osmond 25 miles to Glasgow – to give her a tray of pies.

The US singer was gifted the pastries last week after she accepted an invitation to perform in Kilmarnock, East Ayrshire.

The star, whose song Paper Roses is the unofficial anthem of Kilmarnock FC, was presented with Killie Pies after mentioning them on Twitter.

But she “left” the tray behind as she rushed to a performance in Glasgow.

Robert Morton, who invited Osmond to perform, grabbed the tray of steak treats and chased after the 53-year-old singer to the SECC.

He said a local butcher sent the tray of pies over but “somehow she left them behind”.

He added: “So I drove them up to the SECC myself and found one of her crew.

“I explained what had happened and they said they would pass them on.

“I’m not definitely sure if she got them but I did my best to get them to her!”

The American legend – famed for being the sister of perfect-smiled Donny – belted out her hit Paper Roses.

It is a popular song with fans who regard it as the club’s anthem.

Speaking about Marie’s performance Robert added: “She really was great. It’s incredible that she’s been here.

“After she finished at the hotel, her assistants were telling her she had to go but she insisted on getting into the stadium.

“She had a lot of time for everyone and is gorgeous – both on the inside and outside.”

“I’d like to thank Marie for coming and the club for making it happen. It was a great day and left a good feeling around the club.”

Marie said she’s been a Killie fan ever since hearing about the link, and even left her lipstick mark on the League Cup with a kiss.

After the show she was back on twitter congratulating the team on their win in Saturday’s game against Inverness.

She said: “Someone please keep me up on the Score with @officialkillie. I’m backstage and can’t get information.”

And when she was told they won 2-0, the star said: “Congrats @officialkillie on your win. Love, your paper roses girl.”
