Watch: Artur Boruc Gets His Own John Terry Moment On Final Poland Cap

Watch: Artur Boruc Gets His Own John Terry Moment On Final Poland Cap

Artur Boruc - or the Holy Goalie as he is still known by many at Parkhead - played his final international match for Poland against Uruguay on Friday night.

His 65th cap was his last as he is hanging up his gloves in terms of the international scene following this international break, and he wore the #65 on his jersey to mark the occasion.

He was also given his very own John Terry moment as the game came to a halt after 44 minutes while Boruc was withdrawn and given a guard of honour.

It seems like this is actually going to be a thing, despite the ridicule Terry faced for the stunt during his final Stamford Bridge performance.

Wherever Boruc has played he has proven to hugely popular with the fans, and although he made more appearances for Celtic than any other club, it's clear that the Legia Warsaw fans consider him one of their own and hold him as a hero to this day.

Footage emerged of the Legia fans halting the Polish team bus as the players returned to their hotel on Thursday night as they ordered Artur Boruc off so that they could serenade him with a few chants and songs to show their appreciation.

As the Polish players made their way into the hotel, Boruc emerged wearing a Legia jersey to thank the fans.

Clearly Boruc is a very popular man in Poland, and we'll let them off interrputing the game for his send-off as it was only a friendly, and not a Premier League fixture.
