Would you like to discover one of the most iconic football clubs in the world? Join lifelong Celtic fan, Lindsay, on a virtual tour around Celtic Park without the crowds and with a front seat view from the comfort of your home.
Celtic Park is located in the heart of Glasgow’s East End, and is affectionately known to Celtic supporters the world over as ‘Paradise’.
The club was born out of adversity and for the purpose of charity; its aim to provide food for children and the unemployed.
Since our humble beginnings in 1887 the club have gone on to become the dominant side in Scottish football and a European stalwart. Celtic have played in three European finals and we became the first British & non-latin club to lift the European Cup in 1967. We did so playing a style of football that would make any neutral happy.
“And most of the football greats have passed through Parkhead’s gates, for to play football the Glasgow Celtic Way” – Willie Maley song
Celtic has produced some of the world’s best footballers: Jimmy McGrory, Charlie Tully, Jimmy ‘JInky’ Johnstone, Billy McNeil, Bobby Lennox, Danny McGrain, Kenny Dalglish, Tommy Burns, Paul McStay, Aiden McGeady and many more. Many famous footballers have also come to play in the famous green & white hoops, including: Pierre van Hooijdonk, Henrik Larsson, Lubo Moravcik, Stillian Petrov, Shunsuke Nakamura, Artur Boruc, Virgil van Dijk, among others.
I will take you along ‘The Celtic Way’ where you will see Billy McNeil hoisting the European Cup aloft. From there I will show you the trio of statues: Brother Walfrid, Jock Stein & Jimmy Johnstone. I will spend time at the Tommy Burns plaque and discuss Mr Celtic’s lasting legacy. From there we will do a full walkthrough around the ground showing you the plaque commemorating the first Celtic Park and the first Celtic game v future bitter rivals, Rangers. While walking round I will share stories about past players, managers, success &, perhaps, even some failures (depends what mood I’m in).
