Unfortunately one of our Twitter followers and fellow football shirt collector Paul Lamb has recently had his rare Celtic 1991-92 matchworn away shirt stolen whilst on display at the National Football Museum, we are hoping you can help us find it!
The rare Celtic matchworn 1991-92 away shirt made by Umbro which was worn by Charlie Nicholas and is valued at £600 was on display at the National Football Museum in Manchester as part of the ‘STRIP! How Football Got Shirty’ exhibition before being stolen from the third floor at around 14:30pm on February 1st 2020.
Earlier this week Greater Manchester Police released an image of a man they want to talk to in connection with the theft.
Police Constable Mohammed Niazi said, “The Celtic football shirt that was brazenly taken by a member of the public was a rare and unique item and officers are doing all they can to find whoever is responsible for this theft.
“As a result of our strenuous enquiries and work with the National Football Museum we have now been able to release this image in the hope of talking to the man in this photograph.
“I understand that the incident happened at a very busy part of the day in a central part of the city centre therefore if you recognise this man or were in the football museum at the time of the incident and saw anything unusual or suspicious that that could help with our investigations please contact police.”
If you recognise the man pictured or if you have been offered this shirt we urge you to contact the police on 0161 856 3221 or anonymously via Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.
Also you can contact Paul on Twitter at @paolodilamio if you have any information at all.
Please let’s get Paul’s shirt back to him!
