50 years ago eleven local Bhoys became legends in Lisbon.
In this special anniversary year of Celtic’s finest moment, the current squad have paid their own, most fitting, tribute to the Lions’ magnificent achievement. Undefeated throughout the entire league campaign, a feat never before achieved in a 38 game season.
Season 16/17 has seen the current squad break records for most points won, most goals scored, and of course completing our unbeaten campaign.
Like the Lions before them, they’ve done it by playing pure, beautiful, inventive football.
This has been a truly remarkable season. Brendan Rodgers’ side have written themselves into the history books, and with the Scottish Cup Final to come next week we could be on the brink of just our fourth treble in history.
Today is the beginning of a special week, the undefeated league campaign has been achieved. Thursday will see a night of celebration of the Lisbon Lions, on Saturday further history could be made, and Sunday will see a return of past legends to Paradise.
Enjoy it Bhoys and Ghirls.
This is how it feels to be Celtic. Invincible.
