⚫️ 🟢 The Celtic players will wear black armbands in tribute to Wim tomorrow night (Wednesday) against @JamTarts at Tynecastle, and Celtic Park will pay its own tribute to the club's former manager on Saturday at the @dundeeunitedfc game. #YNWA https://t.co/nXr9y0V9yl

The news of Wim’s passing saddened many fans when Feyenoord announced the news, shortly before Celtic passed on their condolences. Without that man guiding his side to the league and stopping the other side in Glasgow from getting 10-in-a-row, Celtic would not be the cub it is today. The man saved Jock Stien’s record.
Wim set up the glory years that would follow, especially with the signing of Henrik Larson.
Wim passed away after losing the battle to the cruel disease, dementia. The horrible disease affects many families all over the world.
Wim Jansen’s funeral will take place on the 29th of January, in Holland.
