Photo Of The Day: The Flags Are Out For Celtic

Today’s photo of the day rewinds to the colourful days of the Jungle Bhoys; a group of Celtic supporters who introduced pre-match displays to Celtic Park.

The group were renowned for their impressive designs covering the entire Jock Stein Stand and this image captures one such occasion.

The Jungle Bhoys were short lived, but a new ultras phenomenon would soon sweep across the support as the Green Brigade, and latterly the Bhoys, would emerge and regularly produce tifos ahead of matches.

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.
