Video: Abandoned Football Stadium, Glasgow’s Forgotten Football Team

Cathkin Park is a site with a huge history in Scottish football. It is also a place of historical prominence for Celtic too.

Cathkin Park was the home of the now defunct Third Lanark, who sadly ceased as a football club in 1967 after several years of mismanagement saw the club go from a genuine force in the Scottish game to extinction. How history repeats itself in Scottish football!

Celtic played at the stadium in many big games including a cup final against Rangers back in 1899.

This new video from a well know football vlogger tells a little more about Cathkin Park, whilst you can also read about Celtic’s connection with the ground in this old article by The Celtic Star.

About Author

Hailing from an Irish background, I grew up in Bournemouth with the good fortune to begin watching Celtic as a young child during the Martin O'Neill era. Still living on the south coast, I have a season ticket at Paradise and also travel to European away matches when possible. At the age of 19, I published my first Celtic book (Our Stories & Our Songs: The Celtic Support). Then, last year, I published my second book (Take Me To Your Paradise: A History Of Celtic-Related Incidents & Events), which is sold in Waterstones and official Celtic FC stores.
