On Monday 15 May 1967 Celtic celebrated that season’s quadruple on Trophy Night at Celtic Park with a 2-0 win over Kilmarnock and all four trophies – The Glasgow Cup, The League Cup, the Scottish Cup and the League Championship trophy – were all there at Paradise, on top of a Shellys vehicle for the best ever half-time entertainment.
Jock Stein’s Celtic all conquering Celtic side took the acclaim of the Celtic support ,and incredibly just 21,000 supporters attended the match, quite remarkably.
Afterwards the Celtic players, who in ten days time were to play in the European Cup Final in Lisbon against Italian giants and bookies favourites Inter Milan.
Here are photos of that half-time trophy display and the players holding aloft Celtic’s greatest ever manager. That’s not what this article is about though. The Celtic Star wants to show you some photographs of the Celtic players taken two nights later on Wednesday 17 May, a selection of individual shots of these Celtic players just eight days before they made history and became the Lisbon Lions.
Look at these photos and look into the players’ eyes and you will see the steely determination of winners. You’ll enjoy this…our photos begin on the next page…
