Celtic have always been associated with colourful football in the more than 120 years since the club was founded to feed the poor children of the East End of Glasgow. Those romantic origins have been honoured by the many great Celtic teams who have lit up the game not only inside Scotland but in some of the most memorable matches the world has ever seen. This wonderfully illustrated book provides a vivid and evocative celebration of the club's golden years. Drawing on the vast photographic archive of the Daily Mirror" and "Daily Record" it features evocative exciting and rare images that show why Celtic means so much to so many people. Here are the famous players who proudly wore their club's colours producing some of football's finest moments in a more innocent age before commercialism took hold of the sport. All the Celtic greats are here pictured in their prime and often in intriguingly unusual behind-the-scenes situations: from Jimmy McGrory to Paul McStay Jimmy Johnstone to Henrik Larsson Kenny Dalglish to Frank McAvennie. They light up these pages along with the great managers and the classic games in which Celtic have been involved. "When Football Was Football: Celtic" is not just about the showcase events and icons of yesteryear: it reveals the inner life of the club with the players off duty the vibrancy of the fans plus the colourful and still intriguing lesser-known stories that have made Celtic so special. Revelling in the club's most glorious years this is a must-have photographic tribute for any follower of Celtic and indeed any football fan."
