Format: Paperback
John Cairney for those who dont know who he is, is a famous Scottish actor and has travelled all over the world in his career. Probably most well known for his portrayal of Robert Burns among many other things.
However, he gets across in this book, what it means to him to be a Celtic supporter and how since from his days growing up, literally in the shadows of Celtic Park to, in later years living in New Zealand, Celtic Football Club has played a big part in his life.
I would recommend this book to anyone who loves Celtic, loves football or indeed just loves life itself. That's what this is about.

i remember the sevenpenny gate as late as 1954.
i have vague memories of the times the author refers to and i do remember singing, win lose or draw - is there a song somewhere?

My husband loved this gift for his birthday. A big Celtic fan, but living in Wales now so wanted to treat him to something I knew he would love.

this book took me back to the old days of Saturdays trials between the first team and the reserves and happy days in the Jungle
