Personalised Celtic Football Book - Gift Details

This gorgeous hand-made leatherette Celtic Football Book will rekindle those glorious sporting events. A tabloid-sized book, it features reprints of original newspaper reports on the team. Kicking off in 1925 and concluding at the end of the 2015 League Champions, it’s a history of Celtic through newspaper reports from the Daily Mirror.

Where do you start? Picking up Celtic’s fortunes in 1925 – by which time the club had already won 26 major honours – this football book covers The Bhoys greatest moments over the following decades.

Celtic’s record is staggering. The club has 91 major honours to its name, including 42 League Championships, 34 Scottish Cups, 14 League Cups and one European Cup. Hardly surprising then, that this book does well to squeeze them all in. But it does, from 1925 onwards, through reprints of original reports and newspaper coverage. All the great years feature, most notably 1967, when The Bhoys won every competition they entered – the league, three domestic cups and the European Cup. Plus, it covers the exploits of all the club greats, including Jimmy McGrory, Billy McNeill, Jimmy Johnstone, Kenny Dalglish and Henrik Larsson.

All the articles are printed on luxury paper and independently cut and bound in a hardback book.

Now available with colour print option for coverage from 2006 onwards.

Enjoy a Newspaper History of the Bhoys

Celtic FC was founded by Brother Walfrid at St Mary's Church Hall in 1887. The Bhoys won the Scottish Cup in Celtic's first full season. The club has since gone on to win over ninety major titles, including more than forty domestic league championships and the European Cup. Celtic came up against Rangers in the club's first official match back in 1888. The Bhoys won the game 5-2 and the two clubs from Glasgow, known collectively as the “Old Firm", have dominated Scottish football ever since. The rivalry the clubs share is one of the most famous contests in world football and both teams continue to contest domestic competitions closely. Celtic enjoyed much European success in the 1960s and 1970s, winning the European Cup in 1967. The Bhoys also contested the final of the UEFA Cup in 2003, and reached the round of sixteen in the UEFA Champions League for the first time in 2007.
