Photo Of The Day: The Streets Of Seville

Today’s photo of the day combines past and present as the streets of Seville are filled with Celtic supporters. Back in 2003, there were 80,000 of us in the Andalusian city for the UEFA Cup Final. Tonight, there will be just a few hundred fans, who went through with the journey despite a U-turn on the decision to allow away supporters into the Benito Villamarín Stadium.

The match ended in heartache 18 years ago, but Postecoglou’s men have the opportunity to bring great joy to the Celtic family tonight. If his side can win and avenge a 59-year hoodoo on Spanish soil (in competitive games) then there will be great cause for celebration in Glasgow and beyond.

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.
