#CelticScarves – Lisbon Lions, in glorious technicolour!

#CelticScarves - Lisbon Lions, in glorious technicolour!

We’ve been sent a picture of the green version of this scarf but Gerbhoy from the Huddleboard has an even better quality in gold with green and white pin stripes.

The Lions themselves have their names enshrined in the shamrock on the crest, below the Big Cup. Fair play to Ger for keeping this in such good condition – those prints often didn’t survive many trips through the wringer.

This fantastic detail of the popular supporters scarf of the ’60s and ’70s was posted by Lima1910 on Kerrydale Street and captures the quality of this scarf – and the shamrocks in all their glory.

It was bought for him by his Granny before the 1970 Scottish Cup final. A wonderful gift – and kept in wonderful condition.

#CelticScarves – Jinky: silky through and through

ImageKnown for his silky skills throughout the world of football, Jimmy Johnstone’s features emblazoned this fetching silk scarf on sale in the early 1970s. 

After Jinky’s sad passing in 2006, the Jimmy Johnstone MND Tribute Fund raised monies for the Motor Neurone Disease Association by selling these silk scarves with his logo (from the Huddleboard as with above pic) and a re-issue of the 1960s Celtic Supporters favourite too:
