Jimmy Delaney

Celtic hero Jimmy Delaney was born in Cleland (Lanarkshire), Scotland on 3 February 1914, and passed away on 26 September 1989, aged 75.

Delaney joined Celtic on provisional forms in 1933 from Stoneyburn Juniors, signing a permanent contract the following year. He spent 13 years with the Glasgow club, making 305 appearances in all competitions. Delaney suffered the misfortune of a badly broken arm in a home game against Arbroath in April 1939. The injury sustained being further exacerbated by the opposition player Attilio Becchi, who was apparently a Celtic fan, accidentally stepping on Delaney’s arm. Delaney’s torn football shirt was sold for £564 at Christie’s in 2002.
