Celtic Underground

The Celtic Underground


    April 1980 Celtic 1-0 Rangers These are strange times we are living in at the moment. Many of us are self-isolating at home including my good self. With so much spare time I thought I would jot down a few memories from Celtic games I have attended through the years. It’ll give me something to […]
  • The 9iar Chronicles – Season One 1965/66

    The 9iar Chronicles – Season 1965-66 This current period we are hoping to achieve the magical 10+ in a row and eclipse the 9 in a row done by another Glasgow team through the 1990s.  Of course they were not the first club to achieve that level of success.  The first Scottish team to win […]
  • Medicine dictates crowning Celtic

    We are in unprecedented times and that requires an unprecedented quality of guest and so this week we have an actual brain surgeon on the podcast! Originally @pablo567 was going to be on to discuss heading of the football and dementia however with the current crisis we thought it would be better to have him […]

    I well remember how Tommy Burns tried to mould his new Celtic team after taking over as Celtic manager in 1994 and by the autumn of 1995 the personnel of the squad had changed dramatically. Out went such luminaries as Mark McNally, Willie Falconer, Paul Byrne, Charlie Nicholas and Tony Mowbray, to be replaced by […]
  • How to end the season?

    We are living in unprecedented times. There have been pandemics before, but not since the Spanish flu pandemic of a hundred years ago have we had a virus that’s had such a worldwide impact. The consequence of which has been major sporting events, and specifically in our context Scottish football games, have been postponed and […]
  • The Umpteenth Avoidable Failure

    BY CRITICAL BILL   The implosion of our friends across the city, has successfully neutered a lot of the disquiet over our European exit.  Indeed  a reaction of a number of fans that I know was one of resignation but not really that bothered because of the comedy going down in Govan.   However Copenhagen […]

    There was a time in the early 1980’s, when the new season’s fixtures were released, that there was one particular fixture which Celtic fans looked out for with keen interest. That fixture was the bi-annual trip to Pittodrie. Before the advent of Inverness CT and Ross County, Aberdeen was the furthermost venue in the Scottish […]
  • Copenhagen Catastrophe

    On Thursday night Celtic played Copenhagen and during the game we decided to give them a little thank you for being such good hosts the previous week.  So we took 3 goals, tied them up in a parcel, put on a lovely bow a gift wrapped the best present we could… Yes we are so […]
  • The Millionaire

    It’s 39 years ago today since one of Celtic’s most memorable wins over Rangers. This is one young supporter’s memory of that fine day back on 21st February 1981… He had been given strict instructions by his Father to be outside Donnelly’s bar at two o’clock. By the tone of Dad’s voice he had known […]

    Tomorrow, February 20th, marks the 40th anniversary of one one of Celtic’s greatest ever cup victories in one of the most remarkable football games Celtic fans of my generation ever got to witness. An occasion when 27,166 fans (aye, and the rest) packed into St Mirren’s old Love Street ground for a night when sheer […]
