25thMay1967 “All-time Celtic Squad” – The Full Line-up

Over the past nine months, we have run a series of posts outlining our notional “All-time Celtic Squad”.  This was a strictly broad-brush and totally tongue-in-cheek exercise, with absolutely no pretence whatsoever at being to any extent definitive or authoritative.

Essentially, it has been a bit of harmless Celtic-minded fun, conducted from an entirely subjective point of view.

That said, we genuinely believe that the final, make-believe squad, assembled here for your delectation (with a little last-minute fine-tuning), would be a formidable one.  Make of it what you will.

GOALKEEPERS:

Johnny Thomson … Willie Miller … Ronnie Simpson … Artur Boruc

FULL BACKS:

Dan Doyle … Alec McNair … Bobby Hogg … Jock Morrison …. Sean Fallon …Tommy Gemmell … David Hay … Danny McGrain … Tosh McKinlay … Didier Agathe

James Kelly … Willie Loney … Billy Cringan … Willie Lyon … Bobby Evans … Billy McNeill … George Connelly … Paul Elliott … Alan Stubbs

Willie Maley … Billy McNeill … Martin O’Neill

We rest our case!
