The book covers over 60 locations, providing address information, pictures and detailing its significance to the Celtic story. Available exclusively on Amazon, all proceeds from sales go to Celtic FC Foundation. The total fund has broken the £1,000 barrier and the first payment was sent across to the charity this morning – £557.28.

The inspiration behind the book’s title and cover design was the iconic Holy Ground of Glasgow Celtic LP from the 1960s

One of the sites that features in the guide is Parkhead Stadium Station and you can read a draft of that piece, in an article that Liam published on The Celtic Star last year.
