Publisher's Synopsis

Celtic Football Club's story is laced with drama and excitement, featuring a host of colourful individuals and a social history matched by few, if any, football clubs.

In Celtic: Pride and Passion, Lisbon Lion Jim Craig and Pat Woods, a historian of the club, take a fresh look at several lesser-known episodes in Celtic's history, including: the fascinating link between Buffalo Bill's Wild West Show and a dramatic Ne'erday match at Celtic Park; the unforgettable night the 'playboy of the Eastern world' lit up Parkhead with a performance that helped to sow the seeds for a revolution at the club; the remarkable story of a trophy that was such a source of friction that the club kept it locked in a safe; and the pivotal year in which the rivalry between Celtic and Rangers took on a darker hue. They also recount the revealing story, told through the eyes of the European press, of how Celtic captivated a continent in the annus mirabilis of 1967.

Celtic: Pride and Passion is a book that no discerning fan of Celtic Football Club will want to be without.
