Green ‘Keeper

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 In 1931 John Thomson
Died so tragic’lly,
After he collided
With a Ranger’s knee..
Football means much more than life or death,
But it was still a shame,
Rest in Peace brave Celtic ‘keeper,
A Martyr of the Game…



John Thomson, Celtic’s goalkeeper, fractured his skull diving at the feet of a Rangers forward. The injury was fatal.
