In the previous episode Paul John Dykes and Kevin Graham are joined by Scottish actor, Simon Weir. Please be warned that the content of this episode is EXTREMELY EXPLICIT.
Simon has appeared as a mechanic in ‘High Road’, a gangster in River City, a Tim in Singin’ I’m no’ a Billy, he’s a Tim, a philandering Granton Star footballer in The Acid House and a philandering filthmeister in Trainspotting 2.
He’s also a massively obsessed Celtic memorabilia collector, and he brought some of his collection into the studio to share with us. Not only does Simon collect rare Celtic shirts, he also used to collect autographs, and the lengths he went to in order to add to his collection had the podcast team in stitches.
Simon was also a footballer, formerly of Clydebank, and he turned out for Joe Miller’s Clyde in the twilight of his career. The former centre-half offers an insight into the infamous Scottish Cup defeat that ruined Roy Keane’s debut back in 2006.
THE CELTIC STAR PODCAST WITH SPECIAL GUEST DAVID LOW
DAVID LOW, who played a crucial role in the struggle against the Old Board and helped Fergus McCann gain control of Celtic and transform the club from top to bottom, is the special guest on The Celtic Star Podcast, A Celtic State of Mind.
Here are some of the highlights in this week’s pod, which as usual is presented by Paul John Dykes and Kevin Graham.
• That Weisfeld still nipped in at the end, before McCann took over. Weisfeld’s step-son, Michael McDonald, is still on the board.
• That Celtic had 5,000 Rangers shares in 1994 and they were quickly sold.
• Craig Whyte found and sold shares in Arsenal when he took over at Ibrox.
• That it was definitely Michael Kelly and Chris White who held out for a wedge, and that Tom Grant, Kevin Kelly and Jack McGinn didn’t; and they still go to Celtic Park unlike the others.
• That the Masterton / Murray relationship had nothing to do with the hardball tactics from the bank towards Celtic.
• Low gives Celts for Change their place, he describes them as a “street movement” who wouldn’t have forced change without the ‘money men’.
He’s right, of course, but nostalgia and retrospect can often paint a different picture. It’s a remarkable listen…
