Happy Birthday Dear Celtic
Signed by Frank McAvennie
For a club steeped in history like perhaps no other, Celtic's centenary season was always going to be notable. But to achieve a glorious league and cup double in the midst of a period of domination by arch rivals Rangers, against all the odds, made 1987/88 one of the Hoops' most memorable ever.
In Happy Birthday Dear Celtic, Radio 4 journalist Douglas Beattie has tracked down the Celtic team of '88 to reveal the inside story of this thrilling and unexpectedly glorious period in the club's history. Not just the football but the big nights out, a court case, cutting a rap record, a brush with Maggie Thatcher, jumping out of a giant cake and some hairy encounters with Rangers fans.
With a list of interviewees including Frank McAvennie, Mick McCarthy and Packie Bonner - not to mention manager Billy McNeill - Happy Birthday Dear Celtic is a wonderfully revealing account of an incredible season.
