Photo Of The Day: The Hail Hail Tunnel

Today’s photo of the day feature looks back at the famous Celtic Park tunnel at a time when it was emblazoned with the words “Hail Hail!”

The image comes from the St Patrick’s Day Massacre, when Celtic beat Rangers 2-0 in Paradise, on 17 March 1991.

Much has changed since the ground was rebuilt and modernised after Fergus McCann’s arrival in the mid-90s. But old memories of these tunnel details, the Jungle and the terracing of the Celtic End are still fondly recalled by many.

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.
