John Cairney, author of The Sevenpenny Gate, joins Eddie this week and together they take a look back at over 70 years of Celtic history. John tells us his early memories of following the club. He describes the sights, sounds and smells that made up the match day experience in 1939. He talks of great players from the past such as Delaney and Miller and he tells us which of today's squad would be their equal. He talks of his brother's time training with the club and the misunderstanding that led to Jimmy McGrory showing him the door. John tells us of some of his experiences in the sixties as a "Celebrity" Celtic fan including his vital role in ensuring the bhoys swept all before them in 1967. An hour long conversation that barely scratches the surface regarding the numerous ancedotes to be found in John's new book.
And to finish Krys from the Lostbhoys brings us the full audio from the recent ceremony in honour of Johnny Doyle.
