Celtic Fan’s Amazing Painting Of The Late Phil O’Donnell To Adorn The Walls Of Fir Park

Celtic fan and talented artist, Chris Harland, has recently created a superb painting of former Celtic and Motherwell player, Phil O’Donnell.

O’Donnell tragically passed away as a result of a cardiac arrest during a Motherwell match on 29 December 2007. He was just 35 years old. A much loved man and respected footballer, the painting is a fitting tribute to Phil.

Motherwell Football Club have revealed that they purchased the painting and offered it to the O’Donnell family. However, the family’s wish was for the painting to be displayed in the O’Donnell stand at Fir Park and the club have agreed to that request.

Commendably, Chris has decided to donate all proceeds from the painting to Cardiac Risk in the Young charity.
