Photo Of The Day: 30 Pence For A Programme

Celtic face Heart of Midlothian at Paradise in the club’s next fixture and today’s photo of the day revisits a meeting between the pair in February 1984. On that occasion, Celtic won 4-1 and Brian McClair bagged a hat trick. However, the focus of our image is the matchday programme… which was available for just 30 pence!

That’s just 99p in today’s money!

Hailing from an Irish background, I grew up in Bournemouth with the good fortune to begin watching Celtic 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. I have written four Celtic books since the age of 19: Our Stories & Our Songs: The Celtic Support, Take Me To Your Paradise: A History Of Celtic-Related Incidents & Events, Walfrid & The Bould Bhoys: Celtic's Founding Fathers, First Season & Early Stars, and The Holy Grounds of Glasgow Celtic: A Guide To Celtic Landmarks & Sites Of Interest. These were/are sold in Waterstones and official Celtic FC stores, and are available on Amazon.
