  Photographs & memories of the famous GLASGOW CELTIC

Celtic IndexThe Lisbon Lions  



No other game in Celtic's history compares to the European Cup final triumph in 1967

On Thursday, May 25, eleven Scotsmen and a Scottish manager all born within a 30-mile radius of Celtic Park became the kings of Europe, defeating Inter Milan of Italy 2-1 in Lisbon's National Stadium to become the first British team to win the
European Cup.

Manager Jock Stein

Craig McNeill Clark Gemmell
  Murdoch Auld  
Johnstone Wallace Chalmers Lennox

The names of these men will be revered for evermore for their achievement.
The years have not diminished it. If anything, time has only served to make the triumph all the more remarkable.

I took this photo in March.2007 in the Jock  Stein lounge.

In an era of the Champions League, when Europe's premier club tournament has been moulded and meddled with to suit the big clubs and, more importantly, the television companies, it's the Spaniards and the Germans, even the English, who now dominate the latter stages of the tournament; and it's not even always the champions of each particular country.

Back in 1967, however, it was only the champions who qualified to take part in the European Cup. Celtic, having won the first of what would eventually be nine consecutive league titles, entered the competition for the very first time. Nine games later they had lifted the trophy.......It all began on September 1966
