Celtic Star jimmy johnstone, better known as jinkie. died yesterday at the age of 61 from motor neuron disease.

he had been voted the club’s greatest-ever player. Johnstone made 515 appearances for Celtic between 1963 and 1975, scoring 130 goals and being voted the third-best player in the European Footballer of the Year award in 1967. He contributed to Celtic’s nine successive league titles between 1966 and 1974, though he earned just 23 caps for Scotland.


R.I.P. JINKIE
YOU'LL NEVER WALK ALONE

^glad too see you showin respect^

watched "lord of the wings" last night, it was about jinkie, lmao, he was a cheeky wee guy, he was jus running up the wing, took on one defender, turned around went back took on another, turned hem, headed towards goal, skin'd a couple more, cross's it in, goal...
he is amazing to watch, man u were after him when he was 15 or something, he would of played alongside gorge best an all the other greats that were there at that time, but he came to Celtic, and thank fuck for that!
