Eric ‘John’ Smith – USA & Canada Tour 1957

This shirt was worn by right-half Eric Smith against Tottenham on 9th June during our 1957 tour of the USA & Canada.

This was the fourth game between the two sides in less than three weeks, and the second in two days.

Celtic won 2 – 0 in Montreal, after losing out in the three previous high scoring encounters.

Smith scored 12 times for Celtic before moving on to Leeds United in 1960.
