Video: Glorious Goal As Amazing Team Move Is Rounded Off By Samaras, On This Day 12 Years Ago

12 years sounds like a long time, yet on this day in 2008, Scott Brown was starting for Celtic. It’s incredible to think that he still plays such a key role at the club now. The match was at Fir Park and the Bhoys were out to make a statement after a Glasgow derby defeat.

The first half saw Celtic race into a 4-0 lead with goals from Maloney, Samaras (2) and McDonald.

It was Samaras’ second and Celtic’s fourth goal which catches the eye. Watch out for it in the video below as Celtic score one of their greatest team goals in recent years.

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.
