Celtic Park, Glasgow, Scotland


Along with the smaller Hampden Park, Celtic Park is one of two world class stadiums in the city of Glasgow. Home to the giants of Scottish football, Celtic, the stadium was completely refurbished in the mid nineties by then chairman, Fergus McCann. McCann oversaw the complete rebuilding of three sides of the ground, with the main stand remaining, having already been rebuilt in the 1980s. Today the ground holds 61,000 and is one of the 3 biggest grounds in Britain. A tour of the stadium will introduce the visitor to the statue of club founder, Brother Walfrid, which greets visitors outside the main entrance. Also on display in the trophy room is the European Cup, Celtic of course being Britains first winners of the cup. Throughout the inside of the stadium are photos of the great Celtic players including Larsson Johnstone Lennox & Dalglish. There are also a number of quotes refering to the club, many by the great manager Jock Stein.
