Keven Mealamu signs with the Hoops and you can bid for the shirt

AS well as enjoying their recent trip to Paradise, All Blacks forwards Ben Franks, Dane Coles and New Zealand�€™s most-capped Super Rugby player of all time Keven Mealamu all took time out to sign a retro European Cup Winner replica jersey which they kindly donated to Celtic FC Foundation�€™s Christmas Appeal.
