Jimmy Johnstone On The Wing

Born on September 30th 1944 and taken from us on this day in 2006. He made 515 appearances and scored 129 goals.

Despite being one of the greatest players ever Jimmy only made 23 games for Scotland. We all know the reason for that.

Wee Jinky will always be remembered for his entertaining wing play and passion for Celtic.

Despite a troubled life off the park Jimmy was fortunate to have the great Jock Stein in his corner. This enabled Jinky to play at a high level for longer than maybe he would have under a different manager..

We miss you Jinky the true Lord of The Wings.

Rest in peace.
