A CELTIC jersey worn by Jimmy Johnstone in Sir Bobby Charlton’s testimonial match went under the hammer for £1,500.

As reported by the Evening Times, the green-and-white hooped shirt with long sleeves was donned by Celtic’s greatest ever player, “Jinky” Johnstone, during the match at Old Trafford on September 18,1972.

The jersey, with “J J” written in blue ink on the tag stitched into the collar, was one of 28 Celtic tops to go under the hammer for £10,000 at Julien’s Auctions in Los Angeles yesterday.

Also for sale, the shirt Kenny Dalglish wore in the 1977 Scottish Cup final victory over Rangers, went for £2,000.

Nancy Kapitanoff, Head of Sporting Memorabilia at Julien’s Auctions, said: “Celtic is one of the world’s truly iconic football clubs, with a huge and fanatically loyal fan base around the globe.”
