Video: Paddy McCourt’s Wonder Goal 10 Years Ago Today

On this day 10 years ago, Paddy McCourt scored yet another magical goal against Inverness. He had already put the highland side to the sword in August, this time he destroyed them at Paradise in November.

McCourt effortlessly jinked past three players, shuffling the ball from one foot to the other, before selling the keeper a dummy and tucking into an empty net. It was just glorious artistry.

The match ended 2-2 with Ki scoring the other goal, but Paddy McCourt was the star of the show with a goal out of the George Best/Diego Maradona text book.

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.
