Police hope to catch “silly” culprit who stole iconic 90’s Peoples Celtic shirt from a Manchester Football Museum.

The rare but horrible Celtic top that had a really odd red coloured “peoples” on it from then sponsors Ford, was stolen during public hours by a football fanatic last month.

The shirt was from the early Umbro days of 1990 and nowadays more people are collecting nostalgic and vintage football shirts.

This particular Celtic top is said to be worth a few hundred pounds as there aren’t many available these days on the market.

Police Constable Mohammed Niazi of GMP’s City of Manchester District 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.”

Anyone with any information about the theft should contact police on 0161 856 3221.
