One Of The Great Celtic Pictures Is Now A Decade Old

It’s incredible to think that 10 years have now elapsed since Celtic’s Halloween trip to Perth, when the Hoops brushed aside St Johnstone by three goals to nil.

A brace from Niall McGinn and a goal from Emilio Izaguirre secured victory, but the real talking point was the fancy dress in the stands… culimating in that hilarious moment when Izzy was celebrating with an exuberant Celtic supporter wearing a morph suit. Fortunately the cameras were on hand to capture the moment. It will be a wonderful resource for historians of the future to look back on, no doubt perplexed, in 100 years time!

About Author

Hailing from an Irish background, I grew up in Bournemouth with the good fortune to begin watching Celtic as a young child during the Martin O'Neill era. Still living on the south coast, I have a season ticket at Paradise and also travel to European away matches when possible. At the age of 19, I published my first Celtic book (Our Stories & Our Songs: The Celtic Support). Then, last year, I published my second book (Take Me To Your Paradise: A History Of Celtic-Related Incidents & Events), which is sold in Waterstones and official Celtic FC stores.
