    Yeh he replied to me the other day.

    I tweeted him saying I'll never forget his goal against Barca and he tweeted back with a thumbs up. Only a thumbs up but I was buzzing :smiley-laughing002:

    Sent him the YT video of him scoring at tannadice and he replied with "Great times". Some man.

    Check out this recent Celtic podcast with JVH. Good listen and the guy obviously loved his time at Celtic.

    https://player.fm/series/twenty-minute-tims/tmt91-tmt-withjan-vennegoor-of-hesselink

    Scored two of the most important goals in recent history with the last minute goal against oldco rangers that started the comeback to lift the league title. Also in the same season scored the only goal against Dundee United in the final game to win the league.

    Just saw an item on a Dutch tv show about Dutch football players on shirt swapping and special shirts they own. This episode they had Vennegoor where he showed us his debut shirt where he scored the winner with his name all around the number 10.
    Showed the shirt he swapped with Ronaldinho after the Celtic vs Barca match. Thinks he has about 600+ shirts. Great tv show.

    I saw the Vennegoor of Hesselink shirt as in the picture above a while ago on classicfootballshirts with official letters. Never knew they sold them that way when he started here.

    The same show had Royston Drenthe in it and the mad * doesn´t display them in his house or keep them in a safe place, he just wears them playing football with his mates. :giggle1:
