Video: Pierre’s Last Gasp Winner Caps A Crazy Afternoon In Paradise

It was on this day in 1996 that Celtic beat Motherwell 1-0. Perhaps there is nothing extraordinary about that, but goal line clearances at both ends, Gordon Marshall being sent off and a last minute winner tells quite a different story.

The victory put Celtic within two points of Rangers, and sent a delirious crowd into rapturous relief.

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.
