A stolen rare Celtic shirt has been returned to the National Football Museum.

The police issued a photograph of a man they had wanted to speak to in connection with the theft from the museum in Manchester on the 1st of February.

In a statement, the museum said: “We are pleased to report that a Celtic football shirt stolen from our third-floor gallery has now been recovered and returned to the museum.

“We take security of our collections extremely seriously. All our galleries are covered by extensive high-quality CCTV cameras.

“The item had been on loan to the museum as part of an exhibition of football shirts and the jersey can now be reunited with its owner.”

Shirt owner Paul Lamb tweeted: “Absolutely buzzing!!! Thank you so much to everyone for their support over the last month.

“I never thought I’d get to see this again. All your sharing of posts and media links has paid off.”
