Tom Boyd celebrated Celtic’s Hampden triumph as much as any fan- and shared his views with the club’s TV service.
While other former players spend the week drooling over an ‘Old Firm’ final the defender was shunned by the tournament sponsors, organisers and media outlets due to his views running just a little against the grain.
Boyd suffered plenty of set-backs and disappointments as a Celtic player but there is one trophy success that ranks up there as the most significant outside of Lisbon.
In May 1998 he lifted the old-style Scottish Football League championship to preserve the glory and honour of Celtic’s greatest ever era.
Three years later he was on the podium at Hampden with Paul Lambert as the first post-Stein Treble was celebrated- yesterday his voice was struggling as he shared his passion and delight at the 10th successive trophy win- a record that no other Scottish club has come close to.

It takes so much and these bhoys have got that in abundance. We’ve got Neil Lennon’s heart, we’ve got Neil Lennon’s spirit and we’ve got Neil Lennon’s fight and that’s what the bhoys have produced today. The League Cup is back in the Celtic cabinet.
