Video: First Competitive Game Of 2019/20, Goal For Forgotten Star Of Campaign’s Early Stages

This most recent season has now ended, albeit the Scottish Cup will be played at a later date in front of a crowd.

It all began back at the beginning of July in Bosnia & Herzegovina, as the Celts entered the UCL qualifiers against FK Sarajevo. Celtic fell behind early on, but a stunning strike from Mikey Johnston levelled the score before half time.

Edouard scored his first of many goals this season, shortly after the restart, before Scott Sinclair’s clever back heel rounded off a comfortable 3-1 victory for Neil Lennon’s team.

The game was also the birth of the Johnny Hayes song, though that soon faded away when hopes of going to Istanbul were crushed by CFR Cluj.

‘Something inside, so strong…the spirit of Miss Sarajevo,’ Matt Corr’s Diary, Dedicated to the victims of the Siege of Sarajevo and the massacre at Srebrenica – on The Celtic Star from the trip to Sarajevo last July was absolutely outstanding and is well worth a read.

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.
