On the far side of revenge

I used to sit beside a quiet spoken man from Belfast in the Jock Stein Stand at Celtic Park.

The Death Match

Watching the excellent TV series ‘Chernobyl’ reminded me of a European tie Celtic took part in just a few months after the catastrophe at the nuclear plant in the Ukraine.

My Brother’s Keeper

Journalist Graham Spiers is a man I have a lot time for as he has had the courage to write with honesty about the sectarianism which scars the darker corners of Scottish society...

The laughter and the songs

After yesterday’s cup final I stood on the Gallowgate waiting with thousands of others for the Celtic bus to make an appearance.

Calling it out

The decision of Glasgow City Council to allow an Orange Parade to pass St Mary’s church in Glasgow’s east end last weekend caused much debate online.

The laughter and the tears

St Mungo’s parish Hall was packed with Celtic supporters from the local supporters club who had gathered for their players of the year celebration.

A Hero Going Home

The outpouring of genuine emotion over the passing of Billy McNeill reminds us of how closely we Celtic supporters are bonded to our stars of the past.

Farewell to the King

What can you say about Billy McNeill that hasn’t already been written? He was a leader, the alpha male of a pride of magnificent Lions who mauled all comers in Scottish football for a decade and led Celtic to a place among the most feared teams in European football.

The day the music died

The first concert I ever attended took place at the old Apollo theatre in Glasgow.

Mind the gap

Mind the GapThere was a feeling of déjà vu among Celtic supporters after last weekend’s win in the derby match against Rangers.

Bosnia with a ball

When I was a boy it’s fair to say that like most of my pals I was a bit obsessed by football.

Jump the final hurdles

The bar was crowded and the noise and laughter was seemingly getting louder at the night wore on and alcohol took its effect.

A little perspective

When I was a boy I queued outside Celtic Park on a bright August day for a Celtic match against Rangers.

The Fog

Ian slipped off his Celtic scarf and tossed it into the back seat of the car.

A different song

Celtic’s dramatic late winner at Tynecastle went down very well with the support, offering a much needed boost to morale following Brendan Rodgers abrupt departure.

Long live the King

There is no perfect time for a manager to leave a football club but Brendan Rodgers’ decision to walk out on Celtic at such a vital time of the season leaves a sour taste.

The Dark Ages

This has not been a good week for Scottish football nor indeed Scottish society.

The Screamer

Have you ever had a screamer behind you at the match? You know what I mean; someone who spends 90 minutes screaming out utterly inane drivel in the general direction of the playing field in a high pitched, screeching voice? Sometimes it’s a man and sometimes it’s a lady but always it’s annoying.

The Echo Chamber

Objectivity is often conspicuous by its absence in the clannish and suspicious world of Scottish football.

The old Celtic Magic

Ritchie McLaughlan looked around bowl of Hampden Park as they grey Glasgow sky threatened more rain.

What a performance

This week saw the passing of Hugh McIlvanney one of the true giants of sports writing on these islands.

A Celtic heart

The ragged, old woman knocked on the Head Master’s door in a quiet, respectful way as if she didn’t expect an answer.

Without fear or favour

More years ago than I care to remember I stood on the old cinder steps of the Celtic end at Hampden on a freezing December night watching Celtic play Rangers in a league cup semi-final.

Stripes like a zebra

Dreams and songs to sing

Watching Celtic playing so well in that first half in Trondheim against Rosenborg gave us a glimpse of what Brendan Rodgers is trying to achieve at Celtic Park.

The Brothers

Michael grinned at his older brother with that infectious smile of his, ‘You mean Saturday? I’m going on Saturday?’ he asked excitedly in that nasally tone of his.

There was a moment midway through the second half of Thursday’s epic encounter between Celtic and RB Leipzig when the German side were starting to push Celtic back and looking more menacing.

Like over 30,000 other Celtic supporters, I travelled through to Murrayfied in Edinburgh for the League Cup Semi-Final with Hearts.

The Know-Nothings

The nature of prejudice and its role in the subjugation of groups in just about every human society has long been discussed by social scientists.

Jumping the Dyke

I got talking to a chap from Fife in the Chadwick stand at Rugby Park last week and he was telling me that he’d been following Celtic for over 40 years despite his old man dragging him to Ibrox as a boy.

Truth to Power

Few films I’ve watched in my life have moved me quite as much as Callum McCrea’s ‘The Ballymurphy Precedent.’ McCrea wisely lets those who were there and suffered grievously to tell the story of the massacre of ordinary working class people by out of control elements of the British Army in the summer of 1971.

Fight for every ball

Big Archie wasn’t happy when I met him this week, ‘Talk about fcking up a transfer window!’ he began as he supped his pint, ‘what is it with Celtic, we get into a position to leave the other teams streets behind and we feck it up!’His feeling that Celtic haven’t built on a position of strength is shared by many.

Riding the rollercoaster

When was it for you? You know, that moment when you thought ‘Wow! This is my team and it always will be!’ Sometimes you feel it as a boy when your old man or older brothers drag you along and you go just to see what the fuss is all about.
