Harry Hood “deserves his place in Celtic folklore. He wasn’t a Lisbon Lion or a Quality Street Kid, but he fitted in perfectly at Celtic. He had the X-Factor that helped the team win games and in many ways he was the classic Celtic player. His record of 123 goals and 12 major honours stands comparison with the greats.
The thoughts and prayers of everyone at Celtic are with Harry’s family and friends at this extremely sad time.”
