  The Evening Times of Scotland reported on a recent football
  memorabilia at Christie's in London. (that's "soccer" for us
  ignorant Yankees).

  "A MILLIONAIRE city businessman today revealed he had
  spent 44,000 buying Lisbon Lion Bobby Murdoch's medal
  collection.

   The most expensive single item bought by former Parkhead
   director Willie Haughey was the player's 1967 European Cup
   winners' medal which cost 17,925."

   "Today the businessman said he planned to pass all the
   Murdoch items to the club museum for Celtic fans to enjoy."

   "I will hand over the medals to the club museum, so all Celtic
   fans can enjoy them for years to come.

   "That was the main reason why I was so keen to bid for
   them."

   "Mr Haughey bought 28 other medals belonging to the Scottish
   international during a sale of football memorabilia at Christie's
   in London.

   The collection includes a silver runners-up medal from the
   Milan final along with three league championship medals and
