Celtic fans can purchase themselves a nice memento from our weekend win over Motherwell – after the club’s foundation auctioned off the team’s shirts online.
Fans are now able to bid for the likes of Odsonne Edouard or Scott Brown’s shirts from the 2-0 win with the money going to the charity’s Christmas appeal.
Bidding is open on the Foundation’s Ebay page and won’t close until Sunday evening.
Who are the most popular players?
The bidding actually provides quite a neat barometer of what players are most highly regarded by the club’s fans. It’s unsurprising to see some of the first-team’s bigger hitters fetching the more substantial prices – while some fringe men struggle to generate an interest.
Perhaps totally predictably, Odsonne Edouard’s shirt is currently (at the time of writing) fetching the biggest price. A donation of almost £500 has been place on the Frenchman’s jersey after his opening goal in the win over the Steelmen.
Scott Brown’s shirt from his 550th club appearance is also a popular one while so are the likes of Callum McGregor, James Forrest and Ryan Christie.
Who are the least popular players?
Moritz Bauer and Lewis Morgan’s shirts from the match haven’t generated the same level of interest although some fans have clearly spotted the chance to grab a match worn Celtic shirt for a cut price.
Craig Gordon and Greg Taylor are two other players who clearly aren’t top of the bill at present.
How much could the auction raise?
With over £4000 already bid, and several days of the auction to go, the Foundation will be hoping they can raise a fair whack for their Christmas appeal. It’s great to see the club continue its wonderful charity traditions at such an important time of the year.
If fans can help out, and grab a nice memento in the process, then even better.
