    Tribute to former Celt Jim Sharkey

    By: Newsroom Staff on 26 Oct, 2014 11:01

  • THE Celtic players will wear black armbands at today’s match against Kilmarnock in memory of former Celt, Jim Sharkey, who recently passed away at the age of 80.

    Jim signed for Celtic in 1954 and made his debut a year later, on October 1, 1955, in a league game at home against Raith Rovers. And he marked his first appearance for the Hoops with a goal in the 2-0 victory.

    He would go on to make a total of 27 appearances for the club, scoring eight goals before leaving in 1957 for Airdrie.

    The thoughts and prayers of everyone at Celtic are with Jim Sharkey’s family and friends at this sad time.
