1st anniversary of the passing of Jimmy Johnstone

Jimmy Johnstone passed away on the 13th March 2006.

He was a football genius , who was part of the Celtic side that beat Inter Milan to become the first British club to win the European Cup.

What is amazing is that all of Celtics players were born in Glasgow or its environs. Essentially, a Glasgow boys eleven won the European Cup.

What has this to do with PR? Very little. I just wanted to pay tribute to a footballer the equal of George Best and a man who was humble, modest and with a great sense of humour. He will also be remembered for the way he fought Motor Neurone disease, with fortitude and with a desire to raise funds for research although he knew it would be too late to help him.
