The spirit of Lisbon was brought to Maryhill last night as Celtic fans warned up for the 50th anniversary of their side’s European Cup win over Inter Milan.
Old school banners were the order of the day as some of the banners that were in Lisbon were brought back to life with spectacular effect.
There was nothing elaborate or arty about the banners but they got the message across that 50 years ago 10,000 fans left Glasgow, many getting passports for the first time, to watch Jock Stein’s side put their marker down on the history of the game.

It would be a fine tribute to the Lions if the class of 2017 emulated their domestic treble of 1966-67 pic.twitter.com/diSfQotIKT

The Jackie Husband stand at Firhill hosted the display as on the park Brendan Rodgers side showed that they are worthy successors to the Lions with another breathtaking display of attacking football.
It was 3-0 at half time then 5-0 at full time as the Bhoys turned on the style led by Patrick Roberts who scored a spectacular double.
Celtic now have the opportunity to finish the season off unbeaten at home to Hearts on Sunday against the backdrop of a spectacular whole stadium tifo display.
