Celtic Official History of Celtic Football Club Book - UPDATED TO 2017 TREBLE WINNING SEASON!
Celtic is a club like no other. Its story is a unique one, of a football club founded to raise money to help alleviate poverty within the predominantly Irish immigrant community of Glasgow's East End. From its inception, Celtic has been a club open to all and, from these humble and charitable origins, it has gone on to become one of the most famous names in world football. In 1967, Celtic became the first British Club to win the European Cup, while domestically they have won, to date, 48 league titles, 37 Scottish Cups and 16 League Cups.
Celtic supporters sing of 'knowing the history'. It is a unique history that they are rightly proud of, and one which they are an integral part of. This book celebrates, in the words of the legendary Billy McNeill, 'the fairy tale' that is Celtic Football Club.
As the story of Celtic continues - with success on the field, backed by a strong organisation off it, and all underpinned by a commitment to remain true to the charitable roots of the club - this is just the latest chapter . . .
