The moment obviously warmed plenty of hearts, as the Scottish Professional Football League included it in their "Goals of the Month" compilation for the month of January.  

A move equal in class to Hamilton's decision to recognise Beatty's strike in their losing scoreline against Celtic

And just in case you want to relive the moment, just beware of the dust.

Update, February 15: According to Metro Sport, Jay looks like a big favourite to win the goal of the month competition.

Voters can pick their winner on the YouTube comments section, and a quick skim of the responses suggest that his goal is head and shoulders clear of the rest.


 Update, February 20: And sure enough, Jay has won the competition!

Former Celtic striker Giorgios Samaras was on hand to give him a personal message of congratulations to cap off a lovely story.

Update, February 21: The SPFL have now released touching video of Beatty watching himself win the award and Samaras' subsequent message.
