Pic: The greatest Jim McGuinness picture of all time was taken 16 years ago today

This isn’t just the greatest Jim McGuinness picture of all time, it might just be the greatest picture taken of any GAA player ever.

McGuinness, of course, still commands the same reverence as Jesus amongst a large section of Donegal fans after he brought them to the Promised Land in 2012, but way back in 1998 he actually looked like Jesus, as the lads at Inpho Photography reminded everyone when tweeting this picture of McGuinness on its 16th anniversary today.

I mean, if that doesn’t look like a man who was destined to guide his county to an All-Ireland title 14 years down the road, we don’t know what does.

If you liked that, check out some more pictures of McGuinness from that era below, courtesy, once again, of the lovely folks at Inpho Photography.
