So Paddy Power have erected a 12ft 'Jim The Redeemer' statue outside Croke Park

The statue’s base is emblazoned with the words “Jim The Redeemer – For Services To Winning Matches”.

CROKE PARK IS basking in the glory of Jim McGuinness this morning after Paddy Power honoured the Donegal boss with a 12 foot statue outside GAA HQ.

A week after the good people of Laghey paid tribute to McGuinness with a brilliant scarecrow, McGuinness’s miraculous powers have been celebrated with a statue that bears a striking resemblance to his scraggy-haired playing days with Donegal.

Just look at him in all his glory.
