Think Graeme Sinclair also signed for St. Mirren.

He did but never started a game for us.

He owned/might still own a newsagent in St. James Street in Paisley.

Is that Ally McLeod (Murdo's brother) on the left hand side of the middle row?

You could be right, he signed for us around 1976/77. Played for about 5 seasons.

That's around when we had that Admiral strip.

Big Derek Whiteford is front & centre, one of my favourites.

He signed for us around 1982 from memory.  I always thought he was very skilful, but had a poor attitude and lacked commitment, the exact opposite of his brother.  A bit of a waster IMO

The original picture is the size of one of those grains of rice upon which is etched the New Testament. I had to enlarge it slightly.

Ajax manager Rinus Michels strolls onto the Hampden pitch before the second leg of the 1971 European Cup semi final, Celtic's 1-0 win was in vain having gone down 3-0 in Amsterdam the previous week, Ajax went on to win the first of three consecutive European Cups that year.

Fun fact. He got the contract to supply Iranian, and other foreign language, newspapers to Abdelbaset al-Megrahi when he was in Barlinnie.

He looks like a dodgy second hand car salesman in that gear!

Was the final at Wembley that year? Must have been a sore one for Celtic to miss out on. Would have been strong favourites for it.

Away outfit from that season was a cracker, Jim Dick enjoyed showing his arse around that season to Morton fans as well.
