‘The request is in’ – Coatbridge wordsmith Specksy could perform ‘Rising’ at Celtic Park

Whether Snoop Dogg gets his flights arranged in time to get to Glasgow for the Trophy Day title party remains to be seen, however it appears a rapper closer to home may be about to take centre stage at proceedings.

Coatbridge wordsmith Specksy has written a belter of an effort that appears to have gone down well with the Celtic support, given its 73,404 views on YouTube. And that figure much like the title of his song encompassing many of the names of the Celtic players, is ‘Rising’ as we speak.

Now Celtic SLO John Paul Taylor has let it be known ‘the request is in’ to allow Specksy -real name Reece Muir – to perform at Celtic Park for tomorrow’s Party at Parkhead and showcase his work describing the Celts incredible journey under Ange Postecoglou.

And the Coatbridge rapper certainly deserves the chance, as it has to be said he’s produced an absolute cracker with this one. And with the video filmed outside Celtic Park it only seems fair to allow Specksy inside the ground and the chance to perform it live in front of 60,000 fans.

And you never know, perhaps Snoop Dogg will make it to Paradise in time for the trophy presentation. If so I’m sure he’ll be just as impressed at Specksy’s efforts as his YouTube followers are – and with Snoop Dogg’s contacts who knows where it might lead!

As a Bellshill Bhoy I was taken to my first Celtic game in the summer of 1987. It was Billy McNeill’s return to Celtic Park as manager and Celtic lost 5-1 to Arsenal . I thought I was a jinx, I think my Grandfather might have thought the same. It was the finest gift anyone ever gave me when he walked me through Parkhead's gates.
