Conor Gallagher’s stunning model Wag Aine May ‘so proud’ of Chelsea star after first goal for Blues earned win at Palace
CONOR GALLAGHER’S gorgeous girlfriend heaped praise on her man after his stunning match-winner at Crystal Palace.
Gallagher came off the Chelsea bench to score a screamer in the 90th minute – his first goal for his boyhood club – and break the hearts of his former supporters after starring on loan at Palace last season.
That earned Graham Potter his first win as Blues boss – and a congratulatory message from his Wag and No1 fan.
Gallagher posted a picture of his muted celebration at Selhurst Park and wrote: “Special moment for me scoring my first @chelseafc goal! Big 3 points!”
And long-term model partner Aine May Kennedy simply commented: “Superstar,” followed by a face emoji and three love hearts.
Aine May also took to her own Instagram story with a photo of the four-cap England star captioned: “Aw I just love you. So deserved.”
She then added a video taken from the away end full of jubilant Chelsea supporters in South London followed by a pic of Gallagher as a kid in the academy.
Aine May concluded: “So proud of you.”
Conor and Aine May have been together for around four years – dating back to when the footballer was named Chelsea’s Academy Player of the Year in 2018-19.
The blonde bombshells, who have a dog called Freddy, have travelled to South London, South Wales and the West Midlands for his loan moves to Charlton, Swansea, West Brom and Palace – and even Baku when he was an unused sub in the 2019 Europa League final.

They will be hoping they get some winter sun in Qatar, too, because Gallagher wants to secure a spot in the Three Lions’ World Cup squad next month.
Irish beauty Aine May is a professional dancer and regularly shares her glam lifestyle on Instagram, where she has more than 43,000 followers.
Billy Gilmour, Hal Robson-Kanu and Nathan Dyer were among the former team-mates to flood the replies with their support for Gallagher.
The 22-year-old academy graduate – who is yet to start under Potter – said: “He said I’ve got a really important role and I need to keep working hard, remembering who I am and what I am best at, and when given the chance to be as effective as I can be.
“I just need to keep impressing the manager. There’s a lot of top players in the Chelsea squad so it’s not going to be easy to get the game time I want.
“But I’m going to do my best to show that I’m ready and I want to be as effective as I can when given the opportunity.”
On the clincher, Gallagher added: “When I was on the bench I was thinking please just get me on, I’ve got a feeling.
“As soon as I got that half-a-yard I was thinking just shoot and as soon as it left my boot, I was thinking it has a chance.
“It is a special moment for me to score my first goal for Chelsea, an amazing feeling, it is a boyhood dream of mine, and of course it had to come against Palace.
“To score my first goal is massive, just to get that confidence back up a little bit and hopefully I can push on now.”
