One of the many great features of Celtic matches this season is the 67th minute salute to the Lisbon Lions.

At every match as the clock reaches towards the 67th minutes fans reach for their mobile phones to create a torchlight tribute to the greatest team in Scottish football history.

As the stadium gains an extra illumination the fans burst in to a chorus of ‘In The Heat of Lisbon’ in memory of the group of players that became legends 50 years ago.

On the pitch last night Celtic extended their lead at the top of the table to 25 points as they stretched their unbeaten domestic run to 27 matches.

For the fourth time this season Aberdeen had no answer to the power, pace and variety of the Celtic side even though Brendan Rodgers side were without Moussa Dembele, Leigh Griffiths, Tom Rogic and Stuart Armstrong.

Born against Dedryck Boyata scored the winning goal and while the current side create a new domestic record it seems that with every passing year the Lions become more and more revered.
