Harry Hood – Twice as Good is proudly published by Celtic Star Books…

“We’ve got someone twice as good. We’ve got Harry Hood!”

Mention the name Harry Hood and it evokes memories of a wonderful footballer in a glorious era, most notably at Celtic, his boyhood club. Wearing those magical, unspoilt green and white Hoops.

Of the chants which rang out as he scored vital goals for Celtic, against the giants of European football under those massive lights in Glasgow’s east end, in the intensity of the city’s fierce derbies or major cup finals before six-figure crowds. Moments which created history.

Skilful, intelligent and classy, with 125 goals and over 300 games for Celtic in that post-Lisbon era, where the Lions and Quality Street Gang merged with Jock Stein’s astute signings to keep the Hoops at the summit of European football. A key man in an incredible team, some of whom pay tribute to Harry in this, his official biography.

Oh Harry, Harry! He did it all.

And he did it beside some of the greatest Celts of all time.

Jimmy Johnstone, Tommy Gemmell, Kenny Dalglish and Billy McNeill.

Teammates and lifelong friends.

And with that unmistakeable Glasgow sense of humour.

“I called my dog Pele. It was only fair, given that he had called his dog Harry Hood!”

This is Harry’s story.

Published by Celtic Star Books and available now from and also the official Celtic stores.

  1. My dad Harry received the book yesterday and is absolutely delighted with it. He’s 82 now and doesn’t get to games anymore but still loves the Celtic and this book is bringing back some fantastic memories for him. Thank you so much Matt
