St Johnstone star Liam Craig is ready to do his bit to help local charities – by auctioning one of his shirts.

The 33-year-old is keen to help CHAS and Perth and Kinross Foodbank during the Covid-19 pandemic, by welcoming bids for a 2015/16 signed jersey, which, of course, was the season that culminated in European football for the club.

And the veteran fan favourite says that whatever amount is generated by the auction, he will personally add in £200.

The kind-hearted star said in a club statement: “This is obviously a very tough time for everybody but in particular for charities who are working tirelessly to help people in their time of need.

“I thought this would be a way to give something back and to help out during this period of uncertainty.

“And I’m delighted that the club has committed to matching my donation too.”

Bids for Craig’s shirt are being welcomed by the club up until 5pm on Friday.

It is yet another great reflection on St Johnstone, after manager Tommy Wright said last week that he and his players would be ringing round elderly season ticket holders to check in with them and see if they require any assistance.

The Saints are an important part of the community, and in these uncertain times it is brilliant they can be a source of help to others, especially when they are also affected by this awful situation.
