Photo Of The Day: Celtic Park Under Construction

Today’s photo of the day revisits a very different type of rebuild as Paradise was in the midst of modernisation. To quote a famous song, the image shows “a phoenix rising, a house steel and 60,000 Celtic dreams,” about to be made.

It’s great to cast a nostalgic eye back to the mid-90s and look at how far we have come as a club. From near extinction to a world class stadium, terrific training facilities and a couple of decades of excellent domestic success.

Let’s hope the next rebuild is as successful.

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.
