Four players that netted 449 goals through Celtic’s greatest days are being honoured by the Perth WA Celtic Supporters Club as they celebrate their 30th anniversary.

From Lisbon to Seville, through the 9-in-a-row days and the 4-2 match the greatest days in the last 50 years will be recalled in the company of Willie Wallace, Dixie Deans, Murdo MacLeod and John Hartson.

Hartson 109

Wallace 135

Deans 124

MacLeod 81

Adopted Aussie Wallace has been in Australia for over 30 years but as he recently proved with his Tom Rogic comments remains very much in touch with what is happening closer to his old home in Kirkintilloch.

Deans almost overlapped his career with Wallace made a habit of scoring against Hibs with hat-tricks in the League Cup and Scottish Cup in his impressive haul.

Murdo recently recalled the 40th anniversary of signing for Celtic from Dumbarton, where he was a team-mate of Wallace, enjoyed many great Celtic memories including the 4-2 match, the Centenary Scottish Cup Final and winning the league at Love Street.

Hartson enjoyed league and cup title wins under Martin O’Neill and Gordon Strachan, until Leigh Griffiths hit his hundredth goal earlier this season the Welshman had been the last Celtic player to hit that landmark.
