Mikael Lustig has today confirmed on Instagram that he will leave Celtic following 8 trophy laden years at the club. This news does not come as much of a surprise with Lustig hinting that his time was up on a previous Instagram post, his contract talks have been up in the air for some time and recently it has looked more and more likely he would leave. Lustig is a modern day icon at Celtic, a man who truly lives and breaths our club and it is only right we celebrate his 8 brilliant seasons here.

Lustig signed for Celtic in January 2012 having agreed a pre contract agreement with the Hoops from Norwegian champions Rosenborg, prior to his stay in Norway Lustig played for both GIF Sundsvall and Umea FC from his native Sweden. Lustig was a mini coup at the time of him signing for Celtic, the...
Johnny Doyle was born in the small town of Uddingston in North Lanarkshire on the 11th May 1951. The same birthplace of Lisbon Lion Jinky Johnstone and surely an inspiration to a Young Celtic daft Johnny Doyle. Doyle showed much promise from an early age in the junior teams which won him a move from Viewpark boys club to Ayr United in 1970 at the age of 18. An outside right of vintage ilk that liked to get up and down the touchline,never shy of the tackle and a consistent performer. 1975 saw Johnny Doyle earn his first and last cap for Scotland, against Romania in a 1-1 draw in a European qualifier. What was it with players in hoops and Scotland caps in this era? Baffling.

Johnny’s consistency and no nonsense temperament saw him catch the eye of Arsenal, Aberdeen and his bhoy hood heroes in hoops. Doyle knew where he was going but Ayr United...

The last few months have seen Celtic complete an unprecedented treble treble, something that we are unlikely to ever see again, that being said it has been tinged with a huge hint of sadness with the loss of some Celtic legends Stevie Chalmers, Billy McNeill and now the great Harry Hood.

Harry 'Anthony' Hood was born in Glasgow on the 3rd of October 1944, he was raised in the city's neighbourhood of Garthamlock north of the Clyde River, his brother Jackie was also a footballer and moved over to England when Harry was young to sign for Everton before turning out for Tranmere Rovers, East Fife & St Roch's later on in his career. Harry Hood initially attended school at St Aloysius College where Rugby Union was the chosen sport. Seeking a schoolboy appearance for Scotland, he moved to Holyrood Secondary School but...

Trophy Sunday - 19th Of May - 3:00PM KO - Live on Sky

The final league match of the season is upon us with Celtic taking on Hearts at Parkhead this Sunday where we will see the Hoops lift the Premiership title for a 8th straight season. As always with Celtic it's been a long season domestically, with the Hoops also preparing to take on the same opposition in the Scottish Cup final on the 25th of this month as they look to complete the domestic treble.

Sticking with this weekends game though, we could see a much changed Celtic side take on Hearts with Neil Lennon confirming that 16 year old Karamoko Dembele might be in line to make his debut at some point while Ewan Henderson also looks set to play some role in the game, there are a number of other young players who will hope to play some part in the match including 16 year old winger Armstrong Oko-flex, Oko-flex has been...
In the following 1989/90 season, Kilmarnock made a shock announcement that they had signed Burns for £50,000 on December 16th (his 33rd birthday) , despite then manager Jim Fleeting having little finances at his disposal as Kilmarnock languishing in the Scottish 2nd division. Burns would have to wait until the 23rd of that month to make his debut, with Kilmarnock managing a 3-0 victory over Arbroath.

Tommy would go on to be an instrumental part of Kilmarnock's promotion push, with his still obvious talents and vast experience absolutely vital to the team. Kilmarnock finally won promotion at the end of the season, albeit in 2nd place behind Brechin City, and would also go on to win the Ayrshire FA Challenge Cup.

Season 1990/91 would see Kilmarnock finish 5th. 1991/92 season was one that Kilmarnock hoped that they could finally gain promotion back to Scottish...
