– The life and times of Celtic legend JOHN HUGHES
John Hughes, known as Yogi Bear to his adoring Celtic legions, was one of the most explosive and spectacular players in the club’s history.
Now, for the first time, this true legend has decided to lift the lid on his remarkable career. It’s a book that is as powerful as one of his blockbusting shots that became a famous trademark on his way to becoming one of the highest scoring Celtic players of all time.
His forthright views hit the target with all the shuddering force of one of his ‘Yogi Specials’. It’s an unmissable chronicle from a genuine Celtic icon from the sixties, an extraordinary decade in the club’s proud history.
John Hughes scored 189 goals for Celtic and when asked how he’d like to be remembered he answered simply – “as a Celtic man”.
