Hi Liam, we've been absolutely ruined by the quality of the writing and articles that The Celtic Star has provided us with recently.

For as much as we idolise the men who have worn and wear the Hoops, it is often easy to forget the relationships and characters behind the scenes who made/make that happen.

History has shown us that not all of these figures were mighty protagonists, as we are all aware - many of these characters were antagonists who very nearly sank the club into the abyss.

Please keep them coming, Liam.......new knowledge is always good knowledge and like your fellow contributors there is a fine stamp of quality on your work.

Couple of mental stories in here. Part of a delegation sent to Nottingham to retrieve a Celtic legend, who had been kidnapped. The man sent on a horse and cart from Parkhead to Hampden to grab a player from the reserves match to come back and play the second half for the first team as Celtic have 10 men thanks to 3 players suddenly announcing that they are going on strike
