When I write about Glasgow Celtic people from all over the World ask me about MY TEAM, and people who don’t understand my Church, our ways and why we do what we do, and Celtic Park in Glasgow. It is where memories that will last a lifetime are made and moments were created by men who were on top of their game, we also signed players of ANY Race, Colour or Religion, unlike another Glasgow team that died a few years ago. I have many memories and I can’t really describe them, so I will share some video’s. We give to Charity, we are more than football, we are a PEOPLE..And a family I am delighted to say I am part of. Moments made over 126 years, from the Lisbon Lions beating Inter Milan in 1967 making Glasgow Celtic the 1st British Winners of the European Cup. We got to the final again in 1970 and were robbed. Many people all over the World ask me why I love Celtic as much as I do, so here is why. What is there not to love. One friend said “It’s like your Church” An American woman and dear friend, and she was spot on, this is my special place on this Earth, when it’s on fire and loud and the fans are in voice, NOTHING in this World can beat being in Paradise. Some call it Celtic Park, Parkhead, to me, it’s Paradise, you will see why, so this is for my friends all over the World. Enjoy my Church!

 Tommy Burns, he passed away a few years ago, to this day we remember, we always will, it's our way

Many hero’s have came and went, some too soon. Tommy Burn’s passed away, he was Mr Celtic also, we hold people up high, it is our way. We stand for solidarity, we stand for openness, we stand for a culture 126 years in the making, we stand for the poor, we help the poor, we stand with nations like Palestine who were treated like Ireland once was many years ago. We empathise with our history but always look to our future. What came before us we rejoice and sing about, what we have now we support as better days always come. We are up then we are down, it is the Celtic way. We demand to win every game. I would not have it any other way.  To be part of a family of like minded people, people who forgive and forget is why I keep my love for this amazing club. Our fans, people like me are the lifeblood of the club, as one man said “Without fans football means nothing” There are many songs we sing, here are my favourite three, in order
