Tony Watt has raised £2,575 for charity after auctioning off most of his football shirt collection.

Cash For Kids, the well established Radio Clyde charity will benefit from the clear out carried out by the striker from his twitter account.

Watt shot to fame six years ago when he scored for Celtic against Barcelona in the Champions League.

Since then his career has cross crossed Belgium and England, interspersed with a spell at Hearts before he signed for St Johnstone in the summer.

Along the way he has amassed a sizeable collection of football shirts while players such as Shane Duffy and Robert Snodgrass got in touch to provide signed shirts to add to the auction.

The auction has coincided with St Johnstone shooting up the SPFL Premiership table with Tommy Wright’s side reeling off five successive wins without losing a goal.

Watt is one of the most approachable footballers on social media, allowing fans to discover the real player rather than the ‘bad boy’ that is sometimes depicted on the media as he moves from club to club.
