Reliving Paul Lambert’s Derby Day screamer against Rangers

Paul Lambert celebrates his 53rd Birthday today and it gives us a chance to look at one of his greatest goals for Celtic. The central midfielder signed for Wim Jansen’s side in 1997 from Borussia Dortmund. Lambert would go on to become an integral part of the team that stopped 10IAR. In the 1997/98 season, Lambert came up with one of the biggest goals of his career in a game against Rangers at Celtic Park. The ball sat up nicely for the Scotland Internationalist, who struck the ball perfectly to leave Andy Gorum, who had so often foiled Celtic, with no chance.

The win would prove to be pivotal in the stopping of the ten later that year. It was a huge psychological boost for the team.

If this whets your appetite for some of Lambert’s goals for Celtic, below are most of the goals that the midfielder scored for the club over the eight year period.

Lambert made 274 appearances for the club, scoring 19 goals and won 4 Leagues, 2 League Cups and 2 Scottish Cups in his time at the club.
