Little Jimmy passes on

A great little Scottish player died this morning - Jimmy Johnstone. He seemed to only be about five foot six, but was a mazy and tricky winger who played in the great Celtic team of the late sixties and early seventies. He terrorised Scottish left backs for years, and also gave a few English full backs nightmares too when he turned out for Scotland. He died from Motor Neurone Disease, after a long illness, and his website is here. Donations to the MND charity can be made via Jimmy's site.

With George Best dying too, the British game has lost two of it's best wingers in recent months.
