One of four new titles in VSP's best-selling football Pocket Books range, The Pocket Book of Celtic is the essential book for all fans of one of football’s most famous clubs.

Learn about Celtic’s glorious history, from the very first team back in 1887, to the first British European Cup winners of 1967, to the centenary Double winners in 1988. Take a trip down memory lane with classic matches such as the 7-1 thrashing of Rangers in 1957 or the title-clinching win over their Old Firm rivals on the final day of the 1979 season. Savour the skills of a host of club legends, be it McGrain and McGrory or McNeill and McStay.

Packed with original pictures, hand-drawn illustrations and genuine Celtic memorabilia, this beautifully packaged book salutes the greatest goals (who can forget Henrik Larsson’s chip in Martin O’Neill’s first Old Firm match in 2000?), legendary managers and tactics of the club’s most successful teams, as well as the most memorable kits worn over the years – including the first time the iconic hoops appeared in 1903. On top of all that, there is also a club directory, a detailed diagram of Celtic Park, honours, records and stats, plus a foreword by club favourite John Hartson.
