    50 years after winning the competition :87:

    THE Lisbon Lions have been inducted into the Scottish Football Hall of Fame in recognition of their historic achievement in winning the European Cup 50 years ago. And several of the Lions were at a special event in the National Stadium to receive the well-deserved accolade

    Celtic's triumph on May 25, 1967 saw them defeat Inter Milan 2-1 in Lisbon's Estadio Nacional to become the first British side to win the European Cup, and throughout this 50th-anniversary year, there have been many events to celebrate that momentous success.

    Jim Craig, on behalf of the Lisbon Lions, said: “It is very humbling to be honoured in this way and we are delighted to receive this kind of recognition.

    "It has been an emotional year for all the Lions and our families. There have been so many wonderful tributes organised by Celtic and we have enjoyed so many fantastic moments as we have marked this special 50th anniversary year.

    “We're delighted now to also mark this very special year by entry to the Scottish Football Hall of Fame.”

    Celtic Chief Executive Peter Lawwell said: "The Lisbon Lions are highly deserving of any honour they receive. They are a group of men who put Scottish football firmly on the map so many years ago by becoming the first British club to win the greatest prize of all in club football.

    "As a club we have been delighted over so many years to pay tribute to their success and have just celebrated a very special anniversary year in style. "It is fantastic that they have now been recognised in this way, by taking their rightful place in the Hall of Fame."

    Kind of embarrassing it's taken so long.

    Should've been the first inductees. No team will ever achieve what those men did.

    And here is the problem overall for Scottish football authorities. What should be one of the first hall of fame inductees have been left until now. Shameful.

    Quite simply easily the greatest achievement in the history of Scottish Football and one of the great achievements in the history of world sport.

    Yip.

    Absolutely embarrassing, yet not surprising.

    * even the huns of 1972, and the Aberdeen mob that won their Euro Cup should be in it.

    Incredible. Half of them are now dead and should have had the honour of being inducted into the Hall of Fame in their lifetime.

    I think I heard a Scottish journo say not too long ago (may have been Spiers when commenting on the Libson 50th celebrations) that the reason the Hun team of 72 is not held in the same esteem is because (a) obviously it's a grossly inferior achievement, but (b) when they won the ECWC trophy their fans disgraced Scotland by invading the pitch and trashing Barcelona.
