A PIECE of sporting memorabilia has been given to the Scottish Football Museum.

Terry Dick, son of the late Scottish entertainer Glen Daly, gifted the museum a rare framed 10-inch disc recording of “The Laddie Frae Cardenden”.

The disc, believed to be one of only two in existence, is a tribute to legendary Celtic goalkeeper John Thomson and was presented to the museum by another Celtic great, Pat Bonner.

The historic song, written by Alexander McGregor and performed by Douglas Robb, dates from 1931 and was recorded as a tribute to John Thomson who was killed in a tragic accident during an Old Firm match at Ibrox Park on September 5, 1931.

A Scottish internationalist when he died at just 22, John Thomson had already made 188 appearances for his club in a career that was so tragically cut short.

In front of a crowd of 80,000 and early in the second half Thomson and a Rangers player, Sam English, went for the ball at the same time.

Thomson's head collided with English's knee, fracturing his skull and rupturing an artery in his right temple. Thomson was taken off the field in a stretcher; most people assumed that he was just badly concussed.

After having treatment from the St Andrew's Ambulance Association, he was taken to a stretcher.

The game ended 0–0. Thomson was taken to the Victoria Infirmary.

At 5pm he suffered a major convulsion. An emergency operation to try and lower the amount of pressure caused by the swelling brain was carried out, but it was unsuccessful and he was pronounced dead by 9.25pm.

The disc is being donated to the Museum by Terry Dick son the late Glen Daly.

Glen is famous for his recording of The Celtic Song which is still played at every Celtic home game.

Presenting the disc to the Museum was Celtic and Republic of Ireland goalkeeper Pat Bonner, a man who represented his club on 641 occasions and is placed fifth in the Parkhead club’s list of all-time appearances.

Pat was there with Gerry McDade, co-author of his Irish Book Award nominated autobiography, The Last Line.
