Video: Ten Thirty – Poet’s Musical Tribute To Bertie Auld

John Traynor is a Celtic author and poet, whose latest book (A Paradise Anthology) raises funds for Celtic FC Foundation. One of the poems included within A Paradise Anthology pays tribute to Bertie Auld. Today, John has uploaded a musical rendition of that ballad in memory of the great man. It is poignant timing as Bertie was laid to rest this afternoon.

The reading is well worth a listen, a fine tribute to a club legend; whilst the book is a worthy addition to the library of Celtic publications.

About Author

Hailing from an Irish background, I grew up in Bournemouth with the good fortune to begin watching Celtic 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. 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/are sold in Waterstones and official Celtic FC stores, and are available on Amazon.
