Video: Stand on the shoulders of giants

The Green Brigade’s incredible full stadium tifo display before last weekend’s 5-0 win over Aberdeen will live long in the memory. It was a mammoth effort to plan the design, raise funds for the materials, then set out 60,000 pieces of material in the correct position.

The Green Brigade have uploaded a video which shows their efforts in setting up the display throughout the week, before the end product came to fruition and was shown to stunned TV audiences, players and fans in the ground.

From their food bank collections to their incredible support for Fran Alonso’s Celtic FC Women side in the SWPL the Green Brigade and indeed the Bhoys have been outstanding this season and will certainly make their presence felt on the road to Hampden tomorrow and also at the Scottish Cup Final itself.

Hailing from an Irish background, I grew up on the English south coast with the good fortune to begin watching Celtic during the Martin O'Neill era. I have written four Celtic books since the age of 19: Our Stories & Our Songs: The Celtic Support, Take Me To Your Paradise: A History Of Celtic-Related Incidents & Events, Walfrid & The Bould Bhoys: Celtic's Founding Fathers, First Season & Early Stars, and The Holy Grounds of Glasgow Celtic: A Guide To Celtic Landmarks & Sites Of Interest. These were previously sold in Waterstones and official Celtic FC stores, and are now available on Amazon.
