Up until 1994 The Jungle was the heart of Celtic, much much more than a football enclosure. A source of inspiration for some of the club’s greatest achievements.
Progress, the Taylor Report, Fergus McCann and the North Stand brought an end to the Jungle but after cheap seats were installed in 1993 it had lost much of it’s bite.
The name does however live on as does the spirit and passion from that area of the ground which now houses the heated, padded seats of the North Stand.

As the Jungle disappeared, Tony Mowbray introduces the Huddle to Celtic, strangely they never overlapped, missing each other by 12 months.
Celtic shirts can now be spotted far and wide but not many will be found in such a spectacular setting. Throughout pockets of Africa you can find the stamp of Celtic with Malawi, Kenya and South African clubs all delighted to wear the hoops and feel associated with a club from a far distant land.
