Class of 1967, the Celtic stars just before leaving for Lisbon

“You know what? I would just want it to be known that I was a Celtic man.” John Hughes (2022)

”I had to fight to get a place on the plane because the doctor was worried that an ankle injury I had would swell up on the flight. But I was desperate to go – who wouldn’t be? – and the disappointment of not playing was still hard to take, even if it was tempered by the fact that I knew deep down that I wouldn’t have been able to play.” John Hughes
